This course is focused on the mathematics used in system safety analysis. The purpose of this course is to provide the trainees with a working understanding of the mathematical theories underlying system safety analysis. From this course, the trainees will be able to properly interpret the results of a system safety analysis and use it in their intended applications. The course will begin with the fundamentals of probability theory and will cover the uses of that theory for solving various system safety problems. Statistical methods will also be covered in relations to establishing equipment failure frequencies. System safety examples will be used throughout the course. Each student should bring a calculator with statistical functions.
To provide a level of understanding of the mathematical concepts used in conducting system safety analyses.
Individuals who intend to take the system safety course or would like to enhance their understanding of the fundamental mathematical theories used in system theory.
Attendees should have an engineering or hard science background.
