SYSTEM SAFETY (SSC)
Instruction is given in both system safety engineering and manage- ment with emphasis on complex, high technology systems. Engineer- ing methods are illustrated with practical, numerical examples. The principal system safety analysis method is taught with classroom and homework problems. Preparation of a system safety program plan and management of the system safety process in all phases of the system life are examined in depth. A classroom project provides students with the opportunity to apply system safety management and engineering methods while working as a team. Enrichment lectures in special areas of knowledge essential to the system safety process will also be presented. Each student should bring a calculator with statistical functions.
Objectives: To provide a level of knowledge of system safety sufficient to manage a system safety program and to perform associated system safety engineering tasks.
Who Should Attend: Individuals who have safety responsibilities in the design and operation of complex systems in which an accident can cause substantial loss. Emphasis is upon military projects and contracts.

SOFTWArE SAFETY (SFT)
Software requires special attention in system planning, architecture, design and test. This course presents philosophies and methods of developing and analyzing software and highlights managing a software safety program. Software design principles will be taught to create programs that are fault tolerant and acceptably safe. Several software hazard analyses methods will be evaluated, including Fault Tree/Soft Tree, Software Sneak Analysis and Petri Nets.
