Develop Safety Critical Applications

The course provides an overview how to develop safety critical products and applications. It introduces the terminology and concepts of functional safety such as safety integrity levels and their allocation, risk management, safety life cycle and safety management. The content is linked to the most applicable general safety standard IEC 61508 that is further mapped down to the related industry specific standards IEC 62061, ISO25119, ISO26262.

The course will cover also the advanced topics on developing safety critical applications with a focus on applying SW methods and tools used for achieving safety targets. It will show how to plan the SW development lifecycle, and how it is affected by constraining safety requirements and through a case study.

Furthermore it will illustrate the effects on the project documentation (SW requirements specification, design documentation, testing documentation, etc.). Some of the tools available for providing support for different techniques used to meet certain SIL criteria will be presented.

Course Goal

Help you to scope and plan your activities better for safety but also introduce the set of methods and tools development engineers can use to achieve safety goals.


The course is suited for you who are involved in the critical SW development susceptible to changes due to specific certification requirements. The course suits for management and partly HW persons as well.

Previous / Knowledge

No formal requirements but some level understanding of product development life cycle needed. The most important principles will be introduced again though focusing on SW development activities.


Areas which will be covered are:

Day 1:
• Functional safety introduction and examples
• IEC61508 structure
• Related standards: IEC 62061, ISO25119, ISO26262 etc.
• Management process
• HW considerations

Day 2:
• Software lifecycle
• IEC61508 Part 3
• Relevant parts of IEC61508 Part 1
• IEC61508 Part 6 (w.r.t. the application of IEC61508-3)
• IEC61508 Part 7 (Annex C)
• Certificated or recommended tools
