Software System Safety Engineering is an integrated combination of Software System Safety (SwSS) and software engineering technologies as applied to system safety. It describes generic SwSS processes adaptable to a variety of customer needs, and is tailorable to specific projects and software development processes. Each course module contains material designed to provide the student with the information and detail needed to understand and apply the material. This course is constantly updated to include new techniques, in-depth processes, and real-life examples. Exercises and quizzes are included to build student confidence when applying software system safety principles.
The course begins with an overview of the learning objectives, the need for SwSS, and a description of the relationship between system safety and SwSS. After a discussion of directives, documents, policies and regulations related to SwSS, the course provides detailed instruction on the SwSS process, including a variety analyses and tools. The instruction concludes with planning details for a SwSS program; hazard identification and tracking; risk assessment, risk reduction, and risk acceptance as applicable to SwSS. In keeping with APT’s commitment to excellence, recent updates to the course include modules titled “Programmable Logic Devices,” “Model-Based Software Safety” and “The Future of Software System Safety.” The newest update to this course is a 4th day that expands on Model-Based Systems Engineering and a demonstration of the Ansys Medini tool by ANSYS. This tool provides an efficient and comprehensive process to document functional failure conditions, hazards, safety requirements, and risk mitigations as part of objective safety evidence.
APT also conducts training classes at customer locations for clients who request them. Contact Melissa Emery or Heather Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org for information regarding availability.
