MIL-STD-882E Training Bootcamp, System and Software Safety

MIL-STD 882E-Training

MIL-STD-882E Training Bootcamp, System and Software Safety is a 2-day training course that covers MIL-STD-882E system safety standard. Participants will learn how to identify the Department of Defense (DoD) Systems Engineering (SE) approach to eliminating hazards, where possible, and minimizing risks where those hazards cannot be eliminated.

MIL-STD-882E course covers hazards as they apply to systems / products / equipment / infrastructure (including both hardware and software) throughout design, development, test, production, use, and disposal.

Students will learn about MIL-STD-882E, the military standard used by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to establish guidelines for the development of safety programs related to military systems, equipment, and operations.

You will learn about:

  • Step-by-step and systematic approach to identifying and addressing potential hazards throughout the life cycle of a system.
  • The importance of integrating safety considerations from the early stages of design and development, continuing through system operation and disposal.
  • Various aspects such as hazard identification, risk assessment, risk mitigation, and risk acceptance.
  • Step-by-step process for analyzing potential hazards, evaluating associated risks, and implementing appropriate control measures to minimize or eliminate those risks.
  • The need for thorough documentation and effective communication of safety-related information throughout the system’s life cycle.
  • How to tailor to different types of systems and applications.
  • Key factors such as system complexity, operational environment, and risk tolerance can be taken into account when applying the standard to specific projects.
  • Provide accurate and up-to-date information, my knowledge is based on data available up until September 2021. For the most current information on MIL-STD-882E, it is advisable to consult the official sources or the latest version of the standard.
