This course is designed for individuals managing engineers who are developing electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems in accordance with IEC 61508, or other related standards.

This course is intended for individuals managing engineers who are developing electrical/electronic/programmable electronic safety-related systems in accordance with IEC 61508, or other related standards.

It will provide an appreciation of functional / software safety processes, and the implications for management. In particular, the course will cover the following areas:

  • What is Functional Safety?
  • Functional / Software Safety standards and their applicability
  • Safety Integrity and Safety Integrity Levels (SILs)
  • Functional Safety Management Framework
  • The Functional Safety Lifecycle
  • Hardware and Software realisation processes
  • Through-Life Support Implications
  • Documentation
  • Functional Safety Assessment and Certification

As part of this course, attendees will gain an understanding of the outputs required from the development process in order to demonstrate compliance against IEC 61508. The course will concentrate on these outputs, rather than describing the underlying technical details.
