Mumbai, Feb 27th, 2012- Abhisam is pleased to announce that registrations for a new training workshop on
Practical Calculations for Safety Instrumented Systems” are now open. This course is being organized for the first time in Mumbai, with Dr. Michel Houtermans of Risknowlogy being the lead trainer. If you have ever wondered whether you can have any practice in calculating all that SIL and PFD related stuff, this is your chance!

The workshop is only for those who are familiar with Safety Instrumented Systems, Functional Safety and Safety Integrity Level  concepts, with a few years experience in industry. You need to also know about IEC 61508 and related standards. Ideally those with an FSEng pr FS Professional or CFSE would find this very useful.

In this workshop you will learn to make lots of calculations without getting lost in the theoretical background. After a short introduction you will:

  • Make your own safety models to make probability calculations
  • Calculate the probability of dangerous failures (PFD, PFDavg, PFH) – SIL
  • Calculate the probability of safe failures (PFS) – STL
  • Calculate safety availability and unavailability
  • Calculate process availability and unvavailability
  • Model random, common cause and systematic failures
  • Model hardware and software failures and human error
  • Understand which reliability data needs to be collected

The workshop will take place on April 23rd and 24th in Mumbai (both days inclusive). Contact Abhisam Software for details and registration.
