Safety- and Reliability Analyses (Mil-HdBk217, FMEA, FTA, PSA, SEU)

Introduction to the main methods

This seminar provides a detailed insight into the broad field of safety and reliability. Typical requirements, norms and standards will be presented and an introduction to the main methods and approaches will be given. Participants will practice various methods of analysis on the basis of concrete examples.


  • Basics and definition of terminology

  • Rules, regulations, standards and norms

  • Implementation of objectives: safety-, reliability- and risk related

  • Appropriate methods like 

    • Reliability Prediction of electronic Components and Equipment according to Mil-HdBk217, RIAC HdBk-217Plus

    • Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), Failure Mode and Effect Summary (FMES)

    • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)

    • Functional Hazard Analysis (FHA)

    • Common Mode Analysis (CMA)

    • Combined methods (PSA, SSA, etc.)

  • Cosmic Radiation, Single Event Effects (SEE), Single Event Upsets (SEU)

  • Methodological support of electronic hardware designers in the implementation of FMEA / FMES on functional block / component level
