RAMS Analysis compliance with the regulations IEC 61508, Quality  Control and Assurance

Research topics related with RAMS Analysis compliance with the regulations IEC 61508, Quality Control and Assurance

  • Safety analysis and application of the safety standard IEC 61508. Development of safety applications
  • Techniques to obtain safe and reliable software
  • Quality control and assurance. Software engineering
  • Probabilistic safety assessment (PSA), dynamic system simulation and dynamic reliability methods
Within this research topic, working group analyses and develops safety applications. There is a wide experience working with the safety standard IEC 61508. In addition, the group develops RAMS analysis (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) focused on software safety and reliability, and quality control and assurance, according to ISO 9001 and ISO 90003 standards. Others techniques use by the group are Probabilistic safety assessment (PSA), dynamic system simulation and dynamic reliability methods.
