Abstract:

This report is written to provide DOD system acquisition personnel with an overview of the System Safety function. It assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. This study introduces the language of System Safety and describes some of the more common System Safety analyses types and techniques used in the acquisition process. Using this information as background, a System Safety program is traced through the acquisition cycle. The roles and functions of System Safety personnel in relation to other program functions are outlined for a typical program. To aid personnel new to the acquisition business, the organization and functions of System Safety are described for the major Army, Air Force and Navy acquisition organizations. Author
