ISO 26262 - Writing a Defensible Safety Case
Webinar Title: Writing a Defensible Safety Case
Most Automotive OEMs are using ISO 26262 for Electric cars or across the board with
all of their safety related electronic products. Many tier ones have also aggressively
adopted ISO 26262 since it has been a contractual requirement in their new contracts.
One of the key requirements of ISO 26262 for new products is a Safety Case. They
are similar in many ways with PPAP documents in that they show the evidence that
ISO 26262 has been conformed to successfully. Moreover, ISO 26262 Conformation Measures
and Functional Safety Assessments review safety cases. Furthermore, the Distributed
Interface Agreement or DIA established between a customer and a supplier can include
a Safety Case Review based on ASIL levels. In short, safety cases are an important
output of the ISO 26262 application, especially since the product cannot be released
without an acceptable and conforming safety case.
Part 2 which is the normative (or auditable) is the only part of the ISO 26262 that
provides specific requirements for a safety case. In fact, it says “Safety case
is a comprehensive collection of work products generated as an item progresses in
the safety life cycle.” Clear enough? Ok, so the project could simply collect all
the work products of the Safety Life Cycle. The documents would constitute the safety
case, right? Well, if this is all we do, then we are most probably going to fail.
What then constitutes a defensible safety case?
The webinar will further explore the requirements of a Safety Case for a Safety
Element Out of Context or SEOOC. Many organizations may seek to provide evidence
of 26262 without fully implementing ISO 26262. Is this possible? Join us to understand
this and other interesting discussions regarding the application of Functional safety
in Automotive Systems including Semiconductor technology.
