Development of safety-related systems
Functional safety aims to protect people and the environment from hazards caused by malfunctions of technical systems. When developing safety-related systems, industry-specific functional safety standards must be applied and compliance with them must be demonstrated and documented. Many such systems also require approval based on an independent functional safety assessment.
As consultants with practical experience in functional safety, we know the norms and standards of the various industrial sectors, and the options for their implementation. We advise on the design of your development processes for safety-related systems and find the best possible match between regulatory requirements and your company’s needs.
We train your employees in the use of relevant methods and procedures and support in their application in the various development phases. We advise, among other things, on the determination of hazards, criticality analysis and the assignment of safety integrity levels (SIL) for your systems and system components, but also on optimal architectures and design solutions for safety-related systems (“safety-by-design”) and on adequate approaches for verification and demonstration.
