Collection of Safety Critical Data with SILstat

Recording Date: December 2023

In this video, exida CTO Iwan van Beurden talks about SILStat, explains how you can collect safety critical data using SILStat, exida's life event recording software. We'll compare your SIL performance with your actual performance and see if there's any need for improvement. We're very excited to announce a new version of our SILStat software, which will be released in 2024. This new application is going to be completely web-based, which means that the application will run on your laptop, on a Surface Pro, on an iPad. This web based design allows many users to access the environment at the same time, and collaboratively work on documenting actual operational performance.
