As we now know, a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) can only be given to a product that meets complete compliance.  So to improve your SIL, you must improve one of the three compliance requirements: 

  1. Improve SIL Capability
  2. Improve Architectural Constraints
  3. Improve PFDavg

Improve SIL Capability

  • Improve effectiveness of internal quality management

Improve Architectural Constraints

  • 1oo2
  • 2oo3
  • Change your Hardware Fault Tolerance

Improve PFDavg

  • Decrease Proof test interval
  • Decrease Mission time
  • Change the architecture
