NEN-EN 50716

Cross-functional Software Standard for Railways

inactive
Organization: NEN
Publication Date: 1 February 2022
Status: inactive
Page Count: 130
ICS Code (IT applications in transport): 35.240.60
scope:

This document specifies the process and technical requirements for the development of software for programmable electronic systems for use in control, command for signalling applications and any on-board of rolling stock.

This document is not intended to be applied in the area of electric traction power supply (fixed installation) or for power supply and control of conventional applications, e.g. station power supply for offices, shops etc. These applications are typically covered by standards for energy distribution and/or non-railway sectors and/or local legal frameworks.

For railway related fixed installations (electric traction power control and supply) EN 50562 is applicable.

This document is applicable exclusively to software and the interaction between software and the system of which it is part.

Intentionally left blank

This document applies to software as per subclause 1.1 of this document used in railway systems, including

- application programming,

- operating systems,

- support tools,

- firmware.

Application programming comprises high level programming, low level programming and special purpose programming (for example: Programmable logic controller ladder logic).

This document also addresses the use of pre-existing software (as defined in 3.1.16) and tools. Such software can be used if the specific requirements in 7.3.4.7 and 6.5.4.16 on pre-existing software and for tools in 6.7 are fulfilled.

Software developed according to any version of EN 50128 or EN 50657 will be considered as compliant and not subject to the requirements on pre-existing software.

NOTE This document is the successor of EN 50128 and EN 50657. Subclause 1.6 ensures continuity in the application of these standards, i.e. software that was developed in accordance with the previous SW standards can still be re-used for new projects.

This document considers that modern application design often makes use of software that is suitable as a basis for various applications. Such software is then configured by application data for producing the executable software for the application.

Entry intentionally left empty.

This document is not intended to be retrospective. It therefore applies primarily to new developments and only applies in its entirety to existing systems if these are subjected to major modifications. For minor changes, only 9.2 applies. However, application of this document during upgrades and maintenance of existing software is highly recommended.

For the development of User Programmable Integrated Circuits (e.g. field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) and complex programmable logic devices (CPLD)) guidance is provided in EN 50129:2018 Annex F for safety related functions and in EN 50155:2017 for non-safety related functions. Software running on soft-cores of User Programmable Integrated Circuits is within the scope of this document.
