Understanding ISO 26262: Functional Safety Management System

Seminar Content

This five-day course is designed to help your company prepare for ISO 26262, providing the details of ISO 26262 in a practical nature. This class will give you the information necessary to implement ISO 26262. ISO 26262 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.

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 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
