In evaluating complex systems the interactions and interfaces involving: the human, software, firmware, hardware, and environmental elements require consideration From a safety perspective these elements should be analyzed with specific safety analytical techniques, (software, hardware, human, and environmental hazard analyses methods), which are suited for each of the specific elements. However, there are system risks to consider; a system accident may be comprised of initiating, contributory, and primary hazards; which are the result of adverse interactions between the human, software, firmware, hardware, and/or environment. How does the analyst conduct an integrated hazard analysis and risk assessment to address these adverse interactions and interfaces of all the elements of a complex system?

Integration can be conducted by thinking in terms of system risks...potential accident scenarios with interactions and interfaces involving the elements. A system accident is an adverse process that can form an adverse integration. Discussed here are examples of integrated hazard analysis which address system accidents and system risks....potential accident scenarios.

Why should you attend:

Decision makers, managers, engineers, designers, and scientists require an understanding of complex safety-related risks in order to make appropriate decisions that assure acceptable risks throughout the system, project, process, product or procedure.

  • Complex systems, artificial intelligence, hi tech designs, new processes, expert systems, open architectures, new experimentation, intended use modification, software complexity, enhanced automation, may increase system risk. Complex systems are growing exponentially. Expect increased system accidents when system risks are not addressed. Such risks need to be identified, eliminated or controlled to acceptable levels. Capabilities in system assurance engineering are not well known. Simple cause and effect logic will not enable effective analysis of system risks.
  • There may be system risks associated with the use of automation or hi tech designs and new experiments which are related to safety-related or safety critical applications and open communication systems and advanced automation to address, when it comes to providing safety-related or safety critical information and security-related materials. There may be uncontrolled risks associated with availability, latency, loss of information, intelligent corruption of data, hazardous misleading information, or intentional or unintentional actions, alarm malfunction, inappropriate trust in the system, design or experiment.
  • DIGITAL COMPUTER SAFETY may address system risks associated with the use of safety-related automated tools that may present system risks associated with interactions and interfaces of system elements: hardware, software, firmware, logic, the human and environment. Such risks need to be identified, eliminated or controlled to acceptable levels via mitigations. There is a need for continuous validation and verification of mitigations within these so-called tools.
  • Inappropriate indication presented by automation can lead to bad decisions, which may increase risk.
