Automotive Functional Safety in Compliance with ISO 26262:2018


Software and microelectronics have become key differentiating factors in today’s automobile design and development. With the rising role of electronics in multiple systems and sub-systems within an automobile, functional safety has increasingly become a critical aspect of the overall automobile product design and development. The standard ISO 26262 “Road Vehicles-Functional Safety” is a crucial compliance requirement in the automotive value chain.

Our comprehensive course covers all requirements of ISO 26262:2018.  Case studies are used within the presentation to show how the requirements and concepts of the standard are applied.


Workshop Topics

  • Overview and scope of ISO 26262:2018
  • Management of Functional Safety
  • Tailoring of safety activities
  • Concept phase:
    • Hazard analysis and risk assessment
    • Assigning ASIL
    • Functional safety concept
  • System level development
  • Hardware level development
    • Safety requirements and design
    • Criteria for coexistence of elements
    • ASIL decomposition
    • Analysis of dependent failures
    • Hardware architectural metrics, including types of faults, diagnostic coverage, SPFM, LFM, PMHF, and evaluating safety goal violations
  • Software level development
    • Confidence in software tools
    • Safety requirements and design
    • Software partitioning
    • Software configuration
    • Software unit and integration testing
    • Qualification of software components
  • Verification, validation, and testing at the hardware, system, and vehicle level
  • Proven in use

  • Release for production


Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of Functional Safety: concepts, principles, standards and legal implications.
  • Establish and integrate functional safety management in the entire value chain.
  • Conduct hazard identification and risk assessment for automotive systems.
  • Determine safety goals and “Automotive Safety Integrity Levels” (ASIL) & Application of ASIL Decomposition in different phases of the development.
  • Perform safety analysis (Techniques such as HazOp, FTA and FMEA) throughout the development process.
  • Evaluate quantitative hardware metrics.
  • Define a software development process in accordance with required ASIL.
  • Establish a safety case to facilitate functional safety assessment and certification.

Target Audience

  • Leaders of organizations involved in Engineering Design and Development of Automotive Electrical & Electronic Systems & sub-systems.
  • Experienced developers, project leaders, quality managers and testers who are developing embedded systems in Automotive based on ISO 26262.
  • Managers seeking a better understanding of functional safety of automotive electronic systems and the ISO 26262 standard.
  • Quality& Safety professionals engaged in ISO 26262 compliance.
