About this event

Design and Development of safety systems have become demanding tasks in recent years owing to increasingly stringent safety requirements and the stricter needs for verification, validation and qualification of systems.

This one-day seminar aims to explore the role and importance of software tools in managing the various phases of safety systems lifecycles – from requirements capture to detailed design and final verification and validation.

The event will include talks from software developers, end-users and consultants, to present the state-of-the-art in tools and techniques currently in use for safety systems engineering and the future challenges for further development, such as integration of tools across lifecycle phases / industries

Focus will be also given to qualification and validation of tools to provide guidance on the selection of toolsets for individual needs. The workshop will benefit developers, integrators and end-users alike to gain insights into the emerging trends in software techniques for functional safety development projects.

Ron Pierce, IET representative on the relevant UK National Committee, IEC 61508 Part 3

Ron’s session will look at the requirements in IEC 61508 Edition 2 and related standards such as EN50128 for tool selection and qualification for use.

It will also examine the possible forthcoming changes in Edition 3 of IEC 61508 and how these changes might affect tool users and tool developers.

Andrew Banks  
 

Andrew Banks, LDRA Limited

Andrew’s presentation will look at how, especially in the context of safety and security compliance, the appropriate tools can help with your software verification and validation.

From requirements traceability, through verification (static analysis) to validation (testing).

Whilst highlighting the importance of designing in, rather than bolting on, the necessary features!

Simon Burwood  

Simon J. Burwood BEng (Hons.), FSaRS RFSE CEng , Director FS Expert ESC

Simon’s talk, Software Tools for Managing the Operations & Maintenance Phase of the Functional Safety Lifecycle, Edition 2 of IEC 61511 specifically requires that:

The reliability data used when quantifying the effect of random failures shall be credible, traceable, documented, justified and shall be based on field feedback from similar devices used in a similar operating environment.

This presentation discusses how software tools can help ensure compliance with this requirement by capturing and, crucially: analysing key operations and maintenance data.
