Title: Functional Safety Training!
Post by: Thomas on February 01, 2013, 11:27:38 AM
Hi All!

We are currently developing a Functional Safety Training for our customers.

We have ideas to what to include in a training but I am interested in to know what you would like to see in such a training to meet your expectations?
Your feedback is very valuable as this training will be designed to meet your needs.

Sorry for being a bit vague in my the description of the course but I do not want to limit your ideas what you would like to see.

Looking forward to your feedback // Thomas

Hi Thomas,

I would personnally like to see everything!  Legal requirements, how to design a safe system, hardware requirements, sensor requirements, software design, general good practices, CAN bus design etc etc...and the reasons to use Plus+1 over the competition.  (I am not suggesting there are none, I simply would need to 'sell' it).

Regards Richard

Hi Richard!

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated.

Our goal is to provide a good overview and more in-depth information when possible. During a training like this it is not possible to penetrate every topic due to time limitations but we are right now working on an agenda where we do a mix of overview and in-depth. The topic is for the training is a really wide with a lot of information to be shared.

I'll keep posting information regarding the training in this thread.

Best regards // Thomas

Hi!

It will be a face to face training. The topic is rather complex and face to face is a more effective learning.

Hello Thomas,

would the training be in Älmhult? I´m very interested in such trainings. Will there be a chapter about the mechanical requirements (valves and may be some kind of mechanical locks for moving parts) of a machine?

Greetings
Gregor

Hi Gregor!

Thanks for asking. We are still quite early in the development of the course. I can reveal that it will be 3 different courses in total.

- One more basic with overviews designed for everyone, account managers, system developers and programmers.
- Next step will focus on hazard and risk analysis.
- The last step will focus on software development and processes around it.

We will present the courses layout at Bauma in April, hope you can wait until then. I will keep posting information here so keep asking, input is important for us.

Thanks // Thomas

That looks like a good layout Thomas. I would like to learn how I can use and program the S-D safe controllers to keep compliance with the common safety standards and also how I can integrate it with current Plus1 compliant components with it's ability to perform EDM and other system checks.

Since many people will be flying to get to a training facility it would be nice if all three courses could be attended in a row for those that want to attend all of them.

There's my 2 cents. :)

Do you have any general sense of when this training will be available?

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated!

Unfortunately the 3 courses will be 2 days each, it was impossible to squeeze in all necessary information in one day. 

We will release the trainings at Bauma and that is in mid April.

I will continue to post more information in this topic.

Hope to see you soon in a classroom near you // Thomas

Are there any training classes scheduled in the US yet? This is a very important subject to me.
