Why Bother With Functional Safety Assessments?

Recording Date: December 2019

This webinar highlights the importance and need for performing functional safety assessments and the problems that can arise if these are not performed correctly. The IEC61511 standards identifies 5 stages where Functional Safety Assessments are recommended and/or required. The wording in the standard is somewhat confusing and this webinar helps shed light on which ones should be performed. The primary purpose of a functional safety assessment is to act as an independent means of cross-checking safety to ensure that all the requirements in the SRS have been met. It is also a primary means of ensuring that systematic errors have not been introduced over the course of the lifecycle.
