Training functional safety ISO 26262


Considering the issues concerning functional safety has been an obligatory element in the development of technical systems in many sectors for decades. The ISO 26262 standard has been adapted to the sector and is therefore practically usable for automotive manufacturers and suppliers and does not only concern the conventional development phase but extends to the whole life cycle from product planning to production, operation and decommissioning.

Assystem Germany offers a 3-day training course in "functional safety" that provides a summary of the entire safety-based product development cycle according to the structure of ISO 26262. Issues considered include process design, hazard analysis, safety concept compilation, safety analysis, hardware and software development, verification and testing. Focal points include interpretations and practical examples, as plain presentation of the standards content cannot convey a feeling for appropriate application. Several group exercises regarding different aspects of the standard are performed and discussed. The training shows that functional safety is primarily an engineering activity and not a mere process or quality assurance issue.

Target group

This training addresses future experts in functional safety as well as managers, project managers, developers, system architects and test managers. The target group primarily includes representatives of the automotive sector - OEMs and suppliers - due to the sector-specific content of ISO 26262.
