Companies developing safety-related E/E products may have SPICE-compliant processes.

However, this is not enough to fulfill the requirements specified by functional safety standards like the new ISO 26262.

These processes definitely need an update, and the way the organization works needs a change.

But how is this change best implemented in practice, at lowest possible cost, and with the highest possible success rate?

This tutorial will present the essential steps to be taken to achieve processes and projects capable of functional safety, covering questions like:

  • How can we systematically identify what to change in which element of which process?
  • Where is there little to do, and where is a lot of work ahead?
  • What are the success factors to be considered? How is the change to be organized?
  • What needs to be planned?
  • How long will it take, and what are the costs to be expected?

All of them key questions for engineering process group leaders and managers of safety-related projects.
