International standard for functional safety in the automotive industry
Based on our long-standing practical experience in the field of functional safety and on our active membership of the relevant standards bodies, we supply you with the necessary expertise in the standard ISO 26262, designed specifically for the automotive industry.
The training targets developers, testers, project leads, quality representatives and safety officers primarily focusing on the development of programmable electronic safety systems and aiming to implement their developments on the basis of the recognized international standard ISO 26262.
We offer 6 modules which can be booked individually or in combination:
The new ISO 26262 Module 1 “Functional Safety Management” is a full-day introduction to Functional Safety for the automotive sector. Participants gain a general overview of ISO 26262 and the main planning activities for safety-relevant developments. Detailed explanations of Sections 2, 8 and 9 of ISO 26262 and the resulting activities are given. The course is ideal for executives, managers, project leads, safety managers and all users of IEC 26262 seeking to gain an overview of the additional efforts involved over and above the standard development process. After completing the course, you will be familiar with all steps of the safety life cycle as per ISO 26262 and the safety activities which must be addressed.
ISO 26262 Module 2 “From Risk Analysis to System Design” is a full-day course focusing on Section 3 – Concept Development, Section 4 – System Design, and parts of Sections 8 and 9. Module 2 is primarily aimed at those with responsibility for producing and processing functional, concept and system development projects and for all users of ISO 26262. In the course and the practical exercises in small groups, the participants get familiar with the principles of drawing up hazard and risk analyses and deriving safety goals and parameters and using them as a basis for designing a functional safety concept. In addition, they receive an introduction to producing system requirement specifications and are taught how a technical safety concept is developed in the system phase. They learn about the special features of the various roles, such as OEM, Tier 1 and Tier 2, and about the practical relevance for the automotive industry in this system phase. After completing this module, participants are familiar with the main steps in concept and system development as per IEC 26262 and the preconditions that must be established for the phases of hardware and software development.
Our ISO 26262 Module 3, “Development and Assessment of Safety-Relevant Hardware”, is a full-day training course providing an introduction to the requirements in Sections 5, 8 and 9 of the standard. The requirements for safety-related hardware development are presented and complemented with the help of an exercise on creating the FMEDA hardware fault tolerance metric. You learn the necessary individual processes and activities that are critical for hardware development. Module 3 is aimed particularly at those with responsibility for producing and processing hardware and software development projects as well as all users of ISO 26262. After completing this course, participants are familiar with the key connections between system development, hardware development and software requirements from the perspective of the vendor responsible for hardware supply.
The full-day course in ISO 26262 Module 4 “Development and Assessment of Safety-Relevant Software” provides participants with information about the necessary processes and testing activities for safety-related software development. The requirements set forth in Sections 6, 8 and 9 are examined in a structured manner based on the software development cycle and underpinned with practical examples. You will be familiar with HSI and be able to establish connections with hardware development. Module 4 is aimed particularly at those with responsibility for producing and processing hardware and software development projects as well as all users of ISO 26262. After completing this course, participants are familiar with the key connections between system development, hardware development and software requirements from the perspective of the vendor responsible for hardware supply.
Module 5 “The role and application of safety analysis”, is a full-day training course that focuses on the efficient usage of safety analysis tasks within a safety dependent development. Furthermore, the resulting activities for hardware development as well as planning of safety activities are explained. The background, ISO 26262 requirements for probabilistic and knowledge about necessary input data to execute system FMEA and fault-tree analysis FTA are explained by practical examples. Module 5 is particularly for QM employees, managers, project leaders, safety managers as well as all users of ISO 26262 who would like to get an overview of the additional efforts in comparison to the standard development process. After completing this module, participants know the most important steps of the analysis "S-FMEA" and "FTA" and which roles safety lifecycles are detecting.
Our ISO 26262 Module 6 "Hardware Safety Analysis - FMEDA" is a two-day session that will provide you with specialized knowledge about the requirements of ISO 26262 - Volume 5 for developing the FMEDA. For safety-related hardware development the necessary requirements are presented and supplemented by means of an exercise to develop the hardware circuit. You will learn processes and activities which are necessary for developing the metrics. The module 6 is particularly intended for responsible persons of the hardware who are involved in the ISO 26262 safety lifecycle. At the end of the training day you have the necessary detailed knowledge for developing the hardware metrics.
