Seminar Content

This three-day course will give the participant the information necessary to implement the ISO 26262 Functional Safety Management System standard as a Functional Safety Systems Engineer. 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 electric/electronic systems that are installed in production passenger vehicles.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for System Architects, Integration Project Managers, E/E & SW Project Managers, Functional Developers, Vehicle Verification Engineers, Systems Engineers, Project Management and Functional Safety Engineers.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

Attendees should have a working knowledge of their organization’s New Product Development Process.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies.
