Module A 4

Hardware development - Safety-oriented hardware development and methodical approach to safety analysis


This module does not focus on hardware development itself but on the verification of the hardware concept which is carried out using mathematical models. A practical example is used to present and practice the probabilistic demonstration of safety. Furthermore different analytical methods are discussed.


  • Hardware safety requirements and their derivation from the system concept
  • Determination of the required failure rates at component level and their adaptation to operating conditions
  • Demonstration of the required Safe Failure Fraction (SFF) and the absolute failure rate/probability (PFH/PFD)
  • Overview of the most commonly used analytical methods in Functional Safety
  • Benefits of analytics for Functional Safety
  • Various analytical methods and their advantages and disadvantages
  • Adaptation proposals for possibly existing analytical methods
