Due to the rapid growth of IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Certification, many companies who haven’t achieved certification are now trying to catch up and understand what is involved. Manufacturers now have MANY different options when obtaining certification. Certification is now molded around the manufacturer. How much time will it take? How much will it cost? How many man hours will be consumed to achieve certification? What are the benefits? These are now ALL questions the manufacturer gets to choose.
