The core mission of every safety-critical standard is to ensure the absence of unreasonable risk due to malfunctioning systems resulting in damage to persons or property. These standards guide programs through risk analysis and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) determination, hardware and software development procedures, and the supporting confirmation measures required to pass certification. Adhering to these standards adds a layer of complexity on to already complex development workflows, often resulting in unplanned time and resource overhead. It is critical that programs take a holistic approach when evaluating the solutions and tool chain deployed into a safety-critical project. Mentor design and verification solutions combined with Siemens Lifecycle Management tools constitute a portfolio of integrated products covering every step of your safety-critical workflow.
