  • Development of ISO 9000 and TickIT Quality Procedures for Software Development in High Integrity applications, compatible with the requirements of IEC 61508

  • SAS developed the safety assurance strategy element of a major bid for the FiReControl project; consolidating UK Fire and Rescue Authority control rooms into nine new Regional Control Centres with additional functionality.  Key drivers for the project were to meet stringent resilience requirements (high availability), enhance capability and improve efficiency

  • Developing a process model for System Attribute assessment within a DTI research programme on ensuring safety for advanced robots  

  • Availability modelling of Flue Gas Desulphurisation plant to provide confidence in the system designís ability to satisfy Availability Guarantee requirements and to investigate options for efficient operation
