System Functional Safety Through Automated Electrical Analysis Design 2001-01-0708

This paper describes the use of electrical design analysis software to automate electrical design analysis techniques such as failure mode and effects analysis and sneak circuit analysis. It illustrates the type of reports that an automated electrical analysis can produce and compares them with those produced by an engineer unaided.
The main advantage of the electrical design analysis software is that it significantly reduces the amount of effort needed to complete a competent design analysis report. This makes it possible to perform design analysis much earlier in the design process, at a stage where it is still relatively cost-effective to resolve problems.
