Integrating Safety and Reliability Analysis Into the MBSE Toolkit
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is gaining popularity in organizations creating complex systems where it is crucial to collaborate in a multi-disciplinary environment. SysML, being one of the key MBSE components, has a good foundation for capturing requirements, architecture, constraints, views and viewpoints. It allows linking different types of models that come from different engineering disciplines. However, inherent safety and reliability aspects of the systems are not addressed by the SysML language.
In this tutorial, Andrius Armonas explains the value users get from taking model-based approach to safety and reliability analysis and integrating it into MBSE toolkit. He also shares experience of No Magic, Inc. in building and applying model-based safety and reliability analysis in practice.
The tutorial demonstrates how to perform model-based Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis), and Hazard analysis according to the following standards: IEC 62304, ISO 14971:2007 and ISO 26262.
