Dependable systems review
Early analysis and progressive monitoring of complex system risk
Our dependable systems review offers you essential advice to support the key phases of system development throughout the concept, specification and design stages helping you to get it right first time.
Dependable systems review is based on two international standards: ISO 17894, General principles for the development and use of programmable electronic systems in marine applications and ISO/IEC15288 System Lifecycle Processes.
These standards promote a total-system, human-centred approach to software-intensive marine systems and concentrate on managing the major risks in the use of complex computer-based systems. Using this approach, in which people and technology work together successfully and cost effectively, we can help you achieve optimum performance from computer technology. Through focused risk evaluation at each stage in the life of your developing system from initial concept to de-commissioning we help to assure system dependability.
What are the benefits?
Dependable systems review promotes a systems-oriented view of software-intensive systems development, taking account of operation and maintenance.
It allows developers to innovate and supports the assessment of innovative designs.
It provides a set of dependability requirements that owners can request for all systems.
Dependable systems review helps reduce through-life costs by minimising the risks of in-service failure and human error, and by reducing production losses at the newbuild stage.
How does Lloyd's Register help?
Working together for dependability
Communication and teamwork are essential features of effective systems engineering. Modern systems are highly integrated, with equipment typically sourced from numerous suppliers worldwide. We can draw on our resources as an independent provider of marine risk management solutions to refine key processes and help ensure that stakeholders work together towards a common goal. We can bring our practical and research experience to help solve the real problems of system integration, not only in terms of hardware and software, but also in the human element so critical to task effectiveness.
Helping you manage throughout your systems lifecycle
Our experience and research in the field of marine systems engineering provides an in-depth understanding of when and how risk is introduced, and how this risk can be better managed at source before it leads to fault or failure. We can identify and trace the risks throughout the acquisition, specification and operation of your complex software-intensive systems.
