ProSET® Overview

ProSET®Process Safety Evaluation Toolset combines a family of modules allowing the user to complete risk assessment activities part of the Functional Safety Lifecycle, as required by international standards such as IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.

ProSET® is a family of three tools including:

SIL Comp® – The Complete SIL Compliance Software Suite for SIL Determination, SIL Verification, Safety Requirement Specification (SRS) and Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA)

PHA Comp – The Process Hazard Analysis Compliance Tool for use in PHA studies such as Hazard and Operability studies (HAZOP studies)

A list of features of each of the modules are presented below:

Project Settings

  • Workshop sessions manager.
  • Workshop attendees manager.
  • Assumptions manager.
  • Project Information.

SIL Comp®

SIL Determination

  • Risk Profile Manager
  • SIL Determination via
    • LOPA
    • Risk Graphs, or
    • Both
  • Mode of Operation selection:
    • Low Demand
    • Continuous Demand
  • Selection of consequences for specific hazards
  • Configuration of custom Initiating Events, Independent Protection Layers (IPLs) and Conditional Modifiers.
  • Results summary
  • Target Selection via:
    • Assessed Consequence Category
    • Custom SIL Target
    • Custom PFD Target
  • SIL Status settings of:
    • Open
    • Closed
    • Hold
    • Custom
  • Cost Benefit Analysis, CBA,  via As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) calculations based on either:
    • The PFD Target (from SIL Determination)
    • The Actual PFD (the calculated PFD from the SIL Verification module)
  • SIL Determination report generation
  • SIL Assessment (Determination and Verification combined) report generation

SIL Verification

  • Works in tandem with SIL Determination using SIL Target, PFD Target and SIL Status
  • Allows voting of independent channels from 1oo2 to 3oo4.
  • Allows for the configuration of Custom Failure Rate data attained from manufacturers or other sources
  • Allows custom MooN voting for non-independent channels with no restrictions
  • Live view Reliability Block Diagram (RBD)
  • Complete RBD view
  • Sensitivity Analysis for optimisation of the SIF
  • SIL Verification report generation
  • SIL Assessment (Determination and Verification combined) report generation

Safety Requirement Specification

  • Works in tandem with SIL Determination, extracting the Sources of Demand, Demand Rate on SIF and the SIL Target and PFD Target
  • Allows for input of information to pre-configured fields as per the requirements set in IEC 61511
  • SRS report generation

PHA Comp

  • Management of Nodes
  • Default and Custom Deviations (Parameter and Guideword combinations)
  • Actions Manager
  • Assignees Manager
  • Risk Ranking of Cause / Consequences.
  • PHA report generation
  • PHA Actions report generation.
