ISO 26262 Tool Classification and Qualification
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 industry 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 in customizing a kit to your organization’s specific needs.
This training class is targeted at automotive professionals (functional safety engineers, software project leads, software engineers, engineering managers, and quality managers) involved with the development of safety-related automotive E/E systems.
