The objective of this work is to provide already in the design phase the basic procedures for a systematic verification of reliability and safety of a complex mechatronic product, consisting of hardware and of software. These basic procedures form a selfcontained software package - the “safety development system” SDS - closely linked to the actual product. As an example we will apply this development system to the design of magnetic bearings.
