Organizations rely on functional safety to achieve safety of high-risk equipment.
The link between constructive design standards and analytical investigation techniques can, therefore, yield insights into the limitations of akin standards, it is aimed at reducing risks associated with software for safety functions to a tolerable level by providing feasible requirements and processes. More than that, for planners, contractors and operators of the safety system, there are also application-specific standards.
Akin guidelines or standards vary according to the application area, industrial sector or nature of the risk involved. And also, the standard provides an opportunity to meet industry best while presenting opportunities for significant cost savings. To begin with, in most situations, safety is achieved by a number of systems which rely on many technologies.
