Process and Design Safety Requirements Specifications Implementation in exSILentia

Recording Date: April 2017

The Safety Requirements Specification (SRS) is a key document in the functional safety lifecycle that conveys requirements between phases of the lifecycle. The SRS requirements in the 2016 version of the IEC 61511 standard have been significantly improved over the original requirements in the 2003 edition of the standard. The exSILentia team has implemented the 2016 requirements in the exSILentia software. The initial SRS is typically referred to as the Process SRS as it documents the requirements from the Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) and Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) on the conceptual design of the SIS and SIFs. In addition to this initial or Process SRS, the exSILentia software also contains a Design SRS. The latter documents the requirements that result from the conceptual design and that apply to the detailed design.

This webinar will review the implementation of the SRS in exSILentia and identify key integration aspects of the software that will make compiling each unique SIFs requirements significantly more efficient. The webinar will also look at the Design SRS and specific aspects addressed by this document.
