IEC 61508 Compliant System and Software Development Process: 2 Day Seminar with Dipl.-Ing. M. Heininger
Meet the requirements of the standardized development process with efficient methods and processes.
Software Developer, Test Manager, Project Manager, Functional Safety Manager, Head of Development
The aim is, to reduce the number of errors in systems, including software, to a minimum, depending on their risk. To interpret the standards for the specific application correctly, a wealth of experience is required.
Otherwise there is the risk to implement either a lot more or too little than the standard actually demands.
In the first case, the costs rises in non-acceptable areas. In the second case, you are highly vulnerable to the product lability act, in case of damage.
It can be an accused, that the safety does not consider the current state of the art.
IEC 61508 is a functional safety standard, which means that it was not written for a specific industry sector.
In many ways, the norm remains generally and abstractly. This makes an interpretation more difficult.
The IEC 61508 is a basic standard but nevertheless it applies particular in the industrial automation. The reason therefore is that there are a lot of references in the ISO 13849 to various locations in the IEC 61508.
The seminar provides a practical insight into the standard and the demands for developing software. It will be presented a brief overview of the standard, which reflects the overall content.
The seminar focuses on the industrial and practically relevant interpretation of the content of the standard for developing software.
The spectrum ranges from requirements rules, the definition of a safety software architecture up to static code analysis, unit tests and structural code coverage.
After attending the seminar, you will be able to estimate the weaknesses and strengths of the IEC 61508 referring to implementation in software engineering projects (based on your own project) and to derive appropriate measures.
