This one-day workshop is designed to help your company conduct Fault Tree Analysis.
Not only will you learn the fault tree symbols and methodologies, but you will also
be able to create fault trees for system and component events.
Fault tree analysis is conducted by Engineering teams to identify critical elements
within the design which can cause a fault. Fault tree analysis can be used in critical
and safety related products.
Fault tree analysis is part of ISO 26262, which is the Functional Safety standard
â€œRoad vehicles -- Functional Safety". This standard is an adaptation of the Functional
Safety standard IEC 61508 for the specifics of Automotive Electric/Electronic Systems.
It is to be applied to Safety Related Systems that include one or more E/E systems
that are installed in production passenger cars with a maximum gross vehicle mass
up to 3,500 kg
Who Should Attend
System, Software and hardware engineers, managers responsible for the development
and implementation of systems, software and hardware in a motor vehicle.
Recommended Training and/or Experience
Students should be involved in or aware of software and hardware development as
it relates to the motor vehicle industry.
