SAE's Automotive Engineering International and MKS Present: Functional Safety and ISO 26262 - Essential Tools and Strategies for Compliance (Featuring Doris Wild, Expert for Functional Safety, TÜV SÜD Automotive)
For almost a decade, IEC 61508 has been the valid standard for functional safety in the automotive industry. The upcoming standard, ISO 26262, is based on IEC 61508 but addresses the needs and challenges of vehicle manufacturers and suppliers much more efficiently. It is geared toward system engineering for series production and supports reuse and tailoring. Therefore it is expected that other industries will soon adopt best practices and methods from this standard in their processes. While the right application of ISO 26262 will lead to higher quality and safer products, there is a risk that achieving compliance is cost-intensive and can slow down the innovation and engineering process. Is your organization prepared to comply with this new standard?
Join Doris Wild, an expert on functional safety, TÜV SÜD, and Christoph Braeuchle, Global Automotive Product Manager, MKS, for an informative discussion on the implications of ISO 26262 for automotive organizations with safety-related systems and software development. As software content within vehicles grows exponentially, the complexity is made even greater by the interaction and integration of electrical, mechanical, and software systems. Functional safety mandates full traceability throughout the product engineering lifecycle: requirements, models, tests, calibrations, validation, release. The session will include a review of the essential tools for effective, streamlined compliance and an overview of the process for the qualification of tools according to ISO 26262.
