The aerospace industry has always held safety of paramount importance and it has been a leading sector in the take-up of new and increasingly sophisticated methods for assessing acceptable levels of safety. "Aircraft System Safety" describes the methods considered appropriate for the development of large transport aircraft systems, but it will be of use in any industrial sector producing complex and potentially hazardous systems. Although this subject area is very dynamic and constantly evolving, there are some basic elements which form the foundation for its understanding. Safety criteria are explored, including objective targets which can be achieved or monitored, and the methods involved in auditing arguments, evidence and decisions are outlined. System integration is discussed, as well as how best to argue a system's integrity. The book also considers the practical aspects of safety, with sections on integrating safety assessment into a product's design and lifecycle and meeting stakeholder expectations. A wealth of ideas, concepts, tools and approaches from various and diverse sources and industries have been drawn on in "Aircraft System Safety" to concisely bring the theory of safety together in a useful reference guide. It will be an invaluable guide for students concerned with safety assessments as well as designers, customers, safety assessors and their managers.
