Systems consisting out of electric and/or electrical components have been used to execute safety functions for many years in a wide range of application fields. Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety-related (E/E/PES) based upon computers are taking greater significance at deploying safety functions. 

How can it be ensured that these systems are working properly?

During planning, development, production and maintenance, functional safety must be taken into account right from the start. When implementing these requirements in compliance with the relevant standards, an economical way must be found which nevertheless guarantees sufficient error control.
