The handbook presents an updated version of the PDS method. Among new features are: Calculations for multiple safety systems; Slightly updated model for common cause calculations; More thorough discussion of different demand mode situations; How to incorporate the effect from reduced proof test coverage (PTC) in the reliability calculations; Review and update of the calculation formulas and examples. The PDS method is in line with the main principles advocated in the standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 which have become important standards for specification, design and operation of safety instrumented systems in the process industry.
