Model Based Safety and System Engineering Day

ANSYS and FlowCAD cordially invite you to the Model Based Safety and System Engineering Day on April 2, 2019 in Bern.

Over past decades software has become a dominant and critical part of many components also used within safety relevant applications like Transportation, Nuclear Energy, Aerospace, Defense, Medical and Automotive. However, rapid growing software complexity made the system architecture more bulky and complicated. A Model Based Design Workflow (eg “V- Model”) was the common answer of the industry to facilitate the design and functional verification on architectural and model level followed by subsequent automated code generation and retesting at each stage of the development phase.

Design and verification against software safety standards has become a must to meet requirements in constructing safe and reliable systems for above mentioned markets. Once software safety standards as DO-178B/C, EN 50128, ISO 26262, IEC 61508 are properly obeyed by the developer, the risk of disaster can be reduced although for areas like Automated Vehicles even rules beyond the guidelines need to get applied.

Functional Safety Day

This seminar day features the Functional Safety tools from ANSYS which have been proven to dramatically reduce efforts of verification within safety development cycles. The technologies being discussed comprise ANSYS SCADEANSYS Twin Builder as well as ANSYS Medini Analyze. The tools are getting discussed and demonstrated within safety workflows. Interfacing to requirement management systems, import of existing code or models from other formats (eg. Simulink) will be addressed during the sessions. There will also be shown methods to address Cyber Security threats.

The seminar is intended for safety engineers, project managers and all developers of hard- and software components who need to obey safety standards and certification guidelines within their work environment and want to increase efficiency in design and verification.
