This course aims to provide students with knowledge of the design issues relevant to safety-critical systems.
At the end of this module students should:
- Have knowledge and understanding of scientific principles and methodology necessary to underpin a systematic analysis of safety engineering
- Have an understanding of the appropriate codes of practice and industry standards used in high-hazard industry and an awareness IEC61508 Safety Lifecycle, functional safety and other standards
- Be skilled in applying various hazard analysis techniques, including FMECA, Fault Trees, HAZOP including both quantitative and qualitative approaches
- Have the ability to identify, classify and describe the performance of systems and components through the use of analytical methods and modelling techniques and have an appreciation of the difference between random and systematic faults
Strategic objectives, project management and change management in a safety culture, accountability, legislative influences, statistical methods and probability
