Safety Engineering and Management • Risk Assessment • Legal Background
As systems become more productive and technologies advance, securing that a machine operates correctly in response to its inputs as well as likely operator errors and hardware failures becomes a growing challenge. In order to provide structured guidance and tools to aid manufacturers and system developers in the design and assessment of machine safety the international community developed standards, that aimed at being advantageous in terms of cost, time and resource efficiency as well as effective deployment. But their benefit and usefulness is still pulled into question.
This is the only conference attending to the topic of functional safety in respect to non-road vehicles and mobile machinery alone and thereby focuses on this industry’s peculiarities. In doing so the conference aims to support the market in optimal functional safety management. It presents new technological developments that influence safety engineering and pinpoints misalignment's in current safety standards for non-road mobile machinery.
At this conference:
Take a look at the automotive industry
For the first time in 2016, the conference is co-located with “Applying ISO 26262” and “Automotive Cyber-Security” for the automotive sector in order to facilitate an exchange of ideas and stimulate new opportunities. Take the chance and join the "MASTERCLASS – ISO 26262" previous to the conference on 21 March 2016 and learn about the automotive view on risk assessment, on the analysis of hardware, software and system vulnerabilities and on the qualification of tools according to the ISO 26262 standard.
