SILs One Day Course

“Clearly conveyed, providing useful information on an often misunderstood subject.” - A previous delegate's feedback

SILs can be quite a headache!

The BVAA one-day SILs course takes the attendee from the basis of IEC61508, through SIL determination (where do SILs come from and how are they established?) to SIL Assessment including FMEA (failure modes and effect analysis) application to identify failure modes, sources of failure rate and enable the calculation of PFD (Probability of Failure on Demand) and hence SIL.

What constitutes a viable SIL claim? Probability of Failure on Demand (PFD), Architectural Constraints (HFT and SFF), Control of Systematic failures (Techniques and Measures) and software (if relevant).

The course is focused on what the standard means with respect to the valve industry and so all examples are related to valves and actuators.
