timesIEC 61511 Implementation The Execution Challenge
The Safety Instrumented System (SIS) standard, IEC 61511, is driving the need for new engineering tools and Project Execution Plans (PEP). The standard is a lifecycle approach to defining, implementing and managing a Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS). Industry discussions tend to focus on the technical aspects of the standard owever project execution is proving to have an equal or perhaps greater impact on the quality and success of an IEC 61511 project. Both challenges are driving the need for operating companies to modify and create their internal PEPs, tools, guidelines, standards and procedures. The same is true for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Main Automation Contractors (MAC). This article describes a few of the challenges, from the EPC and MAC perspective, and suggests approaches to enhance IEC 61511 execution and technical outcomes.
