This standard is applicable to all industries where systems, which exhibit state-dependent behaviour, have to be analyzed. The Markov techniques covered by this standard assume constant time-independent state transition rates. Such techniques are often called homogeneous Markov techniques.

                                       Abstract

Electronic components – Reliability – Reference conditions for failure rates and stress models for conversion

IEC 61709:2011 gives guidance on how failure rate data can be employed for reliability prediction of electric components in equipment. Reference conditions are numerical values of stresses that are typically observed by components in the majority of applications. Reference conditions are useful since they are the basis of the calculation of failure rate under any conditions by the application of stress models that take into account the actual operating conditions. This standard also gives guidance on how a database of component failure data can be constructed to provide failure rates that can be used with the included stress models. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:- the addition of a number of component types and the updating of models for a large number of component types; the addition of annexes on reliability prediction, sources of failure rate data and component classification information.

Dependability of software products containing reusable components - Guidance for functionality and tests

IEC/PAS 62814:2012(E) introduces the concept of assuring reused components and their usage within new products. It provides information and criteria about the tests and analysis required for products containing such reused parts. The objective is to support the engineering requirements for functionality and tests of reusable software components and composite systems containing such components in evaluating and assuring reuse dependability.

Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries -- Collection and exchange of reliability and maintenance data for equipment

ISO 14224:2006 provides a comprehensive basis for the collection of reliability and maintenance (RM) data in a standard format for equipment in all facilities and operations within the petroleum, natural gas and petrochemical industries during the operational life cycle of equipment. It describes data-collection principles and associated terms and definitions that constitute a "reliability language" that can be useful for communicating operational experience. The failure modes defined in ISO 14224:2006 can be used as a "reliability thesaurus" for various quantitative as well as qualitative applications. ISO 14224:2006 also describes data quality control and assurance practices to provide guidance for the user. Standardization of data-collection practices facilitates the exchange of information between parties, e.g. plants, owners, manufacturers and contractors. ISO 14224:2006 establishes requirements that any in-house or commercially available RM data system is required to meet when designed for RM data exchange. Examples, guidelines and principles for the exchange and merging of such RM data are addressed. ISO 14224:2006 recommends a minimum amount of data that is required to be collected and focuses on the two main issues: data requirements for the type of data to be collected for use in various analysis methodologies and standardized data format to facilitate the exchange of reliability and maintenance data between plants, owners, manufacturers and contractors. The following main categories of data are to be collected: equipment data, e.g. equipment taxonomy, equipment attributes; failure data, e.g. failure cause, failure consequence; maintenance data, e.g. maintenance action, resources used, maintenance consequence, down time. ISO 14224:2006 does not apply to data on (direct) cost issues; data from laboratory testing and manufacturing (e.g. accelerated lifetime testing); complete equipment data sheets (only data seen relevant for assessing the reliability performance are included); additional on-service data that an operator, on an individual basis, can consider useful for operation and maintenance; and methods for analysing and applying RM data (however, principles for how to calculate some basic reliability and maintenance parameters are included).

Systems and software engineering -- Life cycle processes -- Risk management

ISO/IEC 16085:2006 defines a process for the management of risk in the life cycle. It can be added to the existing set of system and software life cycle processes defined by ISO/IEC 15288 and ISO/IEC 12207, or it can be used independently. ISO/IEC 16085:2006 can be applied equally to systems and software. Risk management is a key discipline for making effective decisions and communicating the results within organizations. The purpose of risk management is to identify potential managerial and technical problems before they occur so that actions can be taken that reduce or eliminate the probability and/or impact of these problems should they occur. It is a critical tool for continuously determining the feasibility of project plans, for improving the search for and identification of potential problems that can affect life cycle activities and the quality and performance of products, and for improving the active management of projects

ISO 31000 (2009)

                                       Abstract

Risk management -- Principles and guidelines

ISO 31000:2009 provides principles and generic guidelines on risk management.ISO 31000:2009 can be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association, group or individual. Therefore, ISO 31000:2009 is not specific to any industry or sector. ISO 31000:2009 can be applied throughout the life of an organization, and to a wide range of activities, including strategies and decisions, operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services and assets.ISO 31000:2009 can be applied to any type of risk, whatever its nature, whether having positive or negative consequences. Although ISO 31000:2009 provides generic guidelines, it is not intended to promote uniformity of risk management across organizations. The design and implementation of risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account the varying needs of a specific organization, its particular objectives, context, structure, operations, processes, functions, projects, products, services, or assets and specific practices employed. It is intended that ISO 31000:2009 be utilized to harmonize risk management processes in existing and future standards. It provides a common approach in support of standards dealing with specific risks and/or sectors, and does not replace those standards. ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose of certification.
