Paper about system certification published

Our staff member Dipl.-Ing. Jenny Oelsner recently published a paper concerning system certification in issue 1/2017 of the journal “Der Eisenbahningenieur”.

For changed and new safety relevant systems in railways the application of CENELEC standards is mandatory. This applies especially for railway signalling components, where the proof of standard-compatible development has to be given by the certification process according to EN 50126-1. The paper describes the specifics and traps of SIL-certification and shows the proceeding with project related and generic system certification.

The paper was generated from experiences of several certification projects of CERSS Kompetenzzentrum Bahnsicherungstechnik. Our competencies in the field of certification are including the design of necessary life cycle documentation and the independent verification according to EN 50126-1 relating to the phase of the development process.
