Description: ISO 26262 addresses the needs for an automotive-specific standard that deals with the functional safety of hardware-software electrical/electronic/programmable safety critical systems. In alignment with good system engineering practices, ISO 26262 uses a system of steps to manage functional safety and regulate product development throughout the lifecycle on today’s hardware and software integrated systems. Specifically, this standard details how to assign an acceptable risk level to a system or component and document the overall testing process.

What impact do compliance standards have on the design, verification and testing of electronic hardware-software systems? What new tools might be needed for safety requirements tractability and risk management? How will compliance be handled? Will this standard set a precedence and framework – especially for simulation lifecycle management and V&V flows – for other industries such as the semiconductor market? These are some of the questions that a panel of experts will address from a tool vendor, designer, V&V engineer and end user point of viewpoints. Please join us for a lively discussion followed by a networking session with drinks and snacks.
