Recording Date: May 2018

Optimal Automation System Product Development -Tools for Functional Safety (IEC 61508) and Cybersecurity (IEC 62443)

This webinar will describe an example product development process for both hardware and software that covers requirements of IEC 61508 for functional safety and IEC 62443 for automation system cybersecurity. Engineering tools have been shown to be effective in reducing man hours and calendar time but perhaps more importantly in reducing design faults resulting in higher design quality. The webinar describes how some of the tools achieve these results. As an example, the FMEDA process for hardware design verification is explained using the FMEDAx tool.
