Safety life cycle management for configuration, operation and maintenance of safety applications offers efficient safety life cycle engineering tools. These tools considerably reduce the costs for engineering, commissioning and maintenance.

As an example, there is the F-block library in S7 F systems and SIMATIC Safety Matrix for configuration and programming of the fail-safe S7-400FH controller. The F-block library integrated in S7 F systems contains ready-made function blocks for creating safety-related applications with the CFC or the SIMATIC Safety Matrix based on it.
