Aim of Course:
By following ISO 26262, developers will be demonstrating that they are following established good practice and state-of-the-art in engineering automotive electronic systems. This course gives expert advice on interpreting and applying the requirements of the standard as well as practical examples of its application drawn from real-life experiences.
Delegates will be able to benefit from the in-depth knowledge and expertise imparted by our experts, enabling them to fully understand the standard and implement procedures in their organisations to ensure that Functional Safety is maintained.
Overview of Course:
The International Standard ISO 26262 Road Vehicles — Functional Safety covers the development of safety related electrical and electronic systems in road vehicles. It has a significant impact on the way that such systems are designed, developed, integrated and validated and is considered to represent the state-of-the-art in automotive electronic systems development.
This functional safety training course draws on direct practical experience of applying the standard with delegates benefitting from MIRA’s collective experience of automotive functional safety and ISO 26262 which currently totals over 150 years gained in vehicle manufacturer and supplier environments.
On this course you will become familiar with the certification requirements for using the functional safety standard for road vehicles. You will learn how to define and present a safety plan for a safety-related embedded system, and how to perform hazard analysis and risk assessments.
The course covers:
- Automotive functional safety – what is it and why does it matter?
- A brief history of the development of ISO 26262
- The relation of ISO 26262 to other standards and guidelines
- Introduction to key concepts of ISO 26262 including safety lifecycle, ASILs, safety goals and safety requirements
- The detailed requirements of each part of ISO 26262
- Recommendations for adopting the standard
The course can also be offered in-house and tailored to specific company requirements or projects. This course option typically lasts three to four days depending on the modules taught.
Courses can also be offered on ISO 13849, IEC 61508 and other standards for functional safety.
