Cost effective modernisation of systems important to safety


The specific technical objectives of CEMSIS are to:
1. Develop a safety justification framework for the refurbishment of SIS that is acceptable to different stakeholders (licensing bodies, utilities) within the Members States;
2. develop methods for establishing the safety requirements for control system refurbishment and develop an associated engineering process;
3. Develop justification approaches for widely used modern technologies, i.e. -COTS products and graphical specification (logic diagram) languages;
4. evaluate these developments on realistics examples taken from actual projects;
5. disseminate the results of our work to plant operators and regulators within the EU.
The main actual deliverables of the project are as follows, and these are discussed in more detail below:
D1 Safety Justification Framework for Licensing Software in Nuclear Power Plants;
D2 Requirements Engineering Best Practice Guide for Refurbishment;
D3 Design guidelines for systems important to safety based on pre-existing products;
D5.5 Summary report on case studies;
D5.6 Public Domain Example Report;
D6 Open Workshop in association with FISA2003 held in Luxembourg on 13 November 2003.
