Ansys medini analyze software implements key safety analysis methods — hazard and operability (HAZOP) analysis, fault tree analysis (FTA), failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA) — all in one integrated tool. It supports the efficient and consistent execution of the safety-related activities required by applicable safety standards. Ansys medini analyze is well integrated with other engineering tools, and enables model-based safety analysis using standards like SysML.


Ansys medini analyze is applied in the development of safety-critical electrical and electronic (E/E) and software (SW) controlled systems in domains like automotive, aerospace or industrial equipment. It is specifically tailored to the domain-specific standards ISO 26262, IEC 61508, ARP4761 and MIL-STD-882E. The application scope ranges from the early conceptual phase through product development and on to the detailed analysis at the semiconductor level.


Ansys medini analyze offers state-of-the-art analysis methods bundled in a model-based environment, including:

  • Safety analysis and design for E/E systems and SW-controlled functions, specifically tailored to the domain-specific standards ISO 26262, IEC 61508, ARP4761 and MIL-STD-882E
