Functional Safety Assessment: The Critical Independent Cross Check

Recording Date: October 2017

The new IEC 61511 standard includes several new functional safety assessment (FSA) requirements. If we do it right, the FSA can give us a more complete second opinion to find and fix potential problems before they get too big. This webinar will focus on the key elements to consider in setting up an effective FSA process including what to assess, when to assess, how to assess and who should do the assessment.
