As part of the release of ISO 26262 in 2011, requirements to establish confidence in the correct functioning of software tools used to develop safety-related automotive E/E systems came into effect. Eight years later, there are plenty of experiences and lessons learned from applying these requirements in day-to-day engineering. However, implementing ISO 26262 tool classification and qualification remains a challenge for many automotive organizations and consumes significant resources. Starting with a systematic introduction to the tool classification and qualification requirements of ISO 26262-8, this 1-day class also reviews current industrial best practices and discusses trends and lessons learned. In the hands-on session, you will familiarize yourself with the structure and content of an exemplary ISO 26262 classification kit for a model-based development tool and gain hands-on experience with customizing such a kit to your organization’s specific needs.
