SIS-TECH: Continuous Growth in the Process Safety Industry
I cannot believe that it has been 15 years, I hope to see you at our Open House and Anniversary celebration on September 10, 2014. See more. . .
How Is Common Cause Failure Accounted for in SIL Solver?
Common cause failure (CCF) is a failure of more than one device, function, or system due to the same cause. For SIS with redundant devices, CCF is often the dominating contributor to PFDavg and STR. See more. . .
Quality Assurance in Safe Automation
Process units have inherent risk associated with their design and operation. Only a rigorous quality management system can maintain the integrity expected from instrumented safety systems (ISS). Identifying improvement opportunities is essential to counter latent failure and minimize risk to ISS. See more. . .
