Safexpert template projects are product-specific copy templates. "Product-specific" means: It is not one copy template for one standard. Ideally, a separate template project is developed for each machine type covered by the standard. This means for you:
Template projects already contain the hazard areas, life phases, significant hazards and the hazard descriptions that can be derived from a standard. In addition, the template projects contain data from other Safexpert additional products, such as:
Template projects are additional products to the Safexpert risk assessment module.
When starting a project, you will usually look for files or documents in your previous projects that you can use as templates for your new project.
But be careful! Standards change. And the standards often lag behind the state of the art. Earlier solutions may then no longer be suitable in your new project. This is also clearly pointed out by the harmonised standard EN ISO 12100:2010 in section 4:
„A machine design that is acceptable at a certain point in time may no longer be justifiable if technological development allows the design of an equivalent machine with less risk.“
It is therefore important that you check for all adopted solutions whether they still correspond to the state of the art for your new product at the time of placing it on the market. In practice, this work costs a lot of know-how, time and money. With Safexpert, we now offer the complete technical infrastructure to support you digitally in this time-consuming activity.
To make this work, our SECOM experts are encouraged to insert the required normative reference data into template projects when developing them.
In conjunction with the new additional product type "Solutions library", we have now created the prerequisite for continuously adapting complete solutions to the state of the art at a central point worldwide. This greatly increases the degree of automation of Safexpert!
Selected specialists from our Standards Experts Community offer already created product-specific template projects for sale, which the experts will support you in using for the first time. This saves you a lot of time and money.
You can't find a suitable template project, but are looking for a solution to spread the development costs over several shoulders? Our Early Adopter Programme offers the optimal solution for you!
