This class will give you the information necessary to implement ISO 26262.ISO 26262 is a Functional Safety standard which is currently under development, titled "Road vehicles -- Functional Safety", scheduled to be published mid-2011. The course is a combination of alternating in-front presentations and hands-on work and is conducted in English. This is standard is an adaptation of the Functional Safety standard IEC 61508 for the specifics of Automotive Electric/Electronic Systems.

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

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies

Seminar Goals

  • Provide an automotive safety lifecycle (management, development, production, operation, service, decommissioning) and support tailoring the necessary activities during these lifecycle phases
  • Cover functional safety aspects of the entire development process(including such activities as requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation, and configuration)
  • Provide an automotive-specific risk-based approach for determining risk classes (Automotive Safety Integrity Levels, ASILs)
  • Use ASILs for specifying the item's necessary safety requirements for achieving an acceptable residual risk
  • Provide requirements for validation and confirmation measures to ensure a sufficient and acceptable level of safety is being achieved
