Safety Critical Systems | Functional Safety | Safety Requirements Analysis

System safety is a major task to cope with when developing or engineering components which are known to be used in safety-critical applications. Safety-critical applications hereby describe systems which cause – in case of a failure – serious harm to humans/animals or damage the (surrounding) environment. Therefore, safety-critical applications must run reliably starting from the date of their commissioning and have to be either fail-safe or fail-operational during their operation. Both aims can be achieved by developing these systems according to safety-related standards. For example, hardware failures can be avoided by using redundant modules whereas software reliability is achieved by implementing mechanisms which are based on majority voting.

We, the team from Spektrum Ingenieurgesellschaft, have the know-how, ability and knowledge about the appropriate tools and utilities to analyze arising risks and to integrate the demanded safety inside our products. We assist our customers with the following services:

  • Requirements analysis regarding safety based on SIL (Safety Integrity Level)
  • Analysis about the required functional safety
  • Functional Safety according to DIN EN 61508, DIN EN 61511 and additional standards (according to the project’s requirements)
  • Risk analysis for the forthcoming operation
  • SIL (Safety Integrity Level)
  • FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis)
  • FTA (Fault Tree Analysis)
  • ETA (Event Tree Analysis)
