Course - System Safety Engineering and Management - MR8404
MR8404 - System Safety Engineering and Management
Lessons are not given in the academic year 2020/2021
Technological systems are becoming increasingly complex with more autonomous functionality making risk analysis and safe operation more challenging. This course addresses fundamental concepts and methods for analyzing, verifying, and ensuring safety in advanced and critical systems. Physical systems are the main focus, but human and organizational factors are also covered.
Knowledge: After having completed the course, the students shall be able to understand and utilize system safety theory and methods for achieving safe operation of technical systems. They should know state-of-the-art and current challenges in the research area, and adjust this knowledge to their PhD-projects.
Skills: The students shall:
-Understand the content of essential concepts in system safety and systems engineering.
-Be able to utilize methods in system safety theory, including STAMP/STPA and CAST, to analyze and model safe and sustainable technological systems. The central focus will be on systems with autonomous functionality, if relevant for the students participating in the course.
-Be able to develop advanced risk models to be used for dynamic risk control and with integrated machine learning.
-Develop safety and/or maintenance indicators for controlling operational safety.
-The students should be be able to write a course paper which forms the basis for a scientific conference article or journal article relevant for the candidate´s PhD-thesis. They should also be able to present and discuss challenges and ideas for further research in the field.
