Seminar Content

This 5 day class will give you the information necessary to implement the functional safety standard ISO 26262. 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. The course combines presentations with hands-on work and is conducted in English.

Concepts are reinforced by a running case study of an air bag system. Forms are used to complete the exercises as a part of the integrated workshops that include Item Definition, Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment (HARA), Safety Goals, ASIL levels, Functional Safety Concept, Technical Safety Concept, and Hardware/Software Interface.

Who Should Attend

Automotive system, software and hardware engineers and managers responsible for the development and implementation of hardware and software systems in passenger vehicles

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

  • Tailor the necessary activities to support automotive safety lifecycle management, development, production, operation, service, and decommissioning
  • Attendees will understand the integration of ISO 26262 with APQP and IATF 16949
  • Forms provided in the class can be used subsequently for ISO 26262 implementation
  • Understand functional safety aspects of the entire development process (requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation, and configuration)
  • Understand the automotive-specific risk-based approach for determining risk classes Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASILs)
  • Use ASILs for specifying the 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
