This new workshop serves as an addition to the existing course in Safety Assessment of Aircraft Systems. Lasting five days, the workshop covers the practical aspects of conducting safety assessment in the aerospace sector. It takes the form of a series of hands-on tutorials to reinforce the process and techniques involved.
Delegates will carry out exercises on aircraft systems using both hardware and systems drawings. These exercises will then be brought together to show how they can be used in the safety analysis of the aircraft or system as a whole.
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis: This exercise will use real aircraft schematics in order to perform a FMEA on a system of medium complexity. This will be carried out in order to determine system reliability and its effect on safety.
Fault Tree Analysis: The workshop exercise will involve delegates working in teams to carry out a Fault Tree Analysis from drawings of an aircraft system. Specialist software for conducting this analysis will be demonstrated, and delegates will have the opportunity to use computer facilities if required.
Zonal Safety Analysis: Delegates will carry out safety analysis of a real aircraft installation on a Zonal basis, in the same manner as required for certification of an aircraft.
At the end of the course delegates will present the results of all team work.
