About Functional Safety Testing
In an ever-more complex world of converging technologies, the safe operation of machines and products increasingly depends on the safety of hardware, software and management systems. Today’s products have numerous features and functions, any of which could put users at risk. ‘Functional safety’ is the aspect of the overall safety of a system or piece of equipment that relates to the machines or products operating correctly in response to their inputs, including the safe management of possible operator errors, hardware failures and environmental changes. DEKRA’s functional safety services verify that all users of your products are completely safe when using every single function of a product.
Functional safety testing also considers the safe management of any potential user or operator errors, hardware failures or environmental changes, completely verifying and validating the overall safety of our customers’ machines and products.
DEKRA carries out functional safety verification and validation work during the design and installation phase of our customers’ products and machines. DEKRA’s functional safety testing specialists also offer customers tailored functional safety assessment plans tailored to their needs and specifications covering the entire product life cycle, which includes complete reviews of the management, hardware and software requirements, design process, verification testing, documentation and complete technical construction file.
