Gain a system-level perspective and achieve system safety
Learn the fundamentals of system engineering, including the most important phases such as requirements engineering, design synthesis, implementation, verification, validation and disposal, and their impact on safety.
Students in this course are introduced to the basic concepts, terminology and methods of engineering safe technical systems. They will be capable to correctly interpret and define technical safety while exploring the system engineering lifecycle expanded to include the required safety processes and concepts. Participants will comprehend the influence the standards, human factor, security, management, and software has on system safety.
The course gives important insights into influences and success factors on safety, as well as the established risk assessment concepts. Special importance is given to functional safety with the goal to understand the role of safety functions and their application in the system engineering lifecycle relevant to safety. Functional safety is emphasized by the specific roles hardware and software may play in achieving the safety goals.
