14. Description of lectures
Basic definitions.
Development of safety-realted systems (concept, system definition, hazard- and risk -analysis, specification of system requirements, architecture and apportionment of system requirements, design and implemetation, manufacture, integration, system validation, system acceptance, certification, authorization).
Failure management of safety-critical systems. Syafety criterias: system requirements, the safety case.
Hazard analysis: FMEA, FMEDA, FMECA, FTA, HTA, HAZOP; hazard analysis during the lifecycle.
Risk analysis. Consequences of the faulty operation - severity. Probability of the faulty operation. Risk classification. Safety Integrity Levels.
Development process of safety-related systems. System lifecycle models and management. Failure management. Human aspects of the safety. Safety analysis. Safety management.
Safety-crtical softwares. Programming of safety-critical softwares. Data security. Program protection Plan. Protection of the RAM.
Safety-critical hardware. Hardware redundancy. Safety strategies.
Formal methods and its application in safety-realted systems.
15. Description of practices
In practices, students must be mastered in hazard- and risk analysis methods (FMEA, FMEDA, FMECA, FTA, HTA, HAZOP).
16. Description of labortory practices
17. Learning outcomes
A. Knowledge
  • is familiar with the concepts and mathematical apparatus of safety, and risk analysis
  • is familiar with the development methods of safety-critical systems and safety architectures
  • is familiar with the numerical descriptive tools of reliability and the related calculation methods
B. Skills
  • capable of performing safety calculations based on a specification
  • can perform risk analysis calculations
C. Attitudes
  • is interested in the safety and risk issues of sifferent transport means
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  • is able to consult in a team in algorithmic and programming tasks, to make independent decision
18. Requirements, way to determine a grade (obtain a signature)
Students must carry out individually a hazard and risk analysis of a designated system.
One midterm exam need to be written. The midterm grade is the average of the results from individual analysis and the midterm exam.
19. Opportunity for repeat/retake and delayed completion
The midsemester exam can be retried once, the individual analysis can be delayed completed.
