Learn the most common safety analysis techniques
System Analysis Techniques course gives an overview and classification of methods used to assess the safety of a system. Most common safety analysis methods are laid out and their workflows are described in detail. The methods covered include Preliminary Hazard List (PHL), Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis and its variants (FMEA/FMEDA/FMECA/Fu-FMEA), Functional Failure Analysis (FFA), Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Event Tree Analysis (ETA).
The course has a high practical dimension, with numerous examples including group work for course participants, which will conduct each method over a practical technical system of choice. The focus of the practical exercises would emphasize the automotive domain, with analysis tackling specifics of hardware and software components in a system safety decomposition and the key quantification including Safe Failure Fraction and Diagnostic Coverage.
