Due to product liability and increasingly critical functions, Functional Safety is today mandatory for many engineers. The training introduces Functional Safety based on ISO 26262. On the basis of our worldwide projects, we show how Functional Safety is achieved in specification, analysis, testing and proof of the safety of systems. We particularly focus on the efficient and sustainable implementation of the standard.

Functional Safety has gained momentum across all industries. Especially the ISO 26262 has in short time gained a strong reputation for professional functional safety engineering, not only in automotive industries. Product liability mandates a thorough proficiency, management and governance of specifications, analyses and implementations of Functional Safety. ISO 26262 ed.2 further strengthens the technology and underlying development processes covering topics, such as thorough modeling, security and semiconductor usage for bottom up reliability and safety.

This training on ISO 26262 ed. 2 with Vector’s internationally renowned experts on Functional Safety introduces the basic techniques for specification, analysis, testing and proving the safety of systems. We show how to apply these techniques in the context of a specific system development. We’ll introduce you to the relevant policies and standards. You see how such methodologies are selected and practically applied according to specific constraints and environments. Based on real examples, we show how safety concepts are implemented, so you can quickly transfer what you have learned to your own environment. The training has been extended to 3 days to allow for more practice training and questions from the audience. A full case study on automotive E/E development will be presented.
