Model-based Development of Embedded Software in Compliance with ISO 26262 – Challenges and Effective Solutions

Over the course of two days, participants in this training workshop will learn how to develop and safeguard safety-critical embedded software in serial projects with Simulink® in compliance with ISO 26262 (part 6). The training workshop will commence with a rundown of the ISO standard before directing attention towards the requirements of the ISO 26262 that pertain to model-based development. The training workshop will then look at the significance of the standard with regards to model-based development with Simulink®, as well as the requirements for model and software architecture in safety-critical software. Participants will learn about tool qualification, effective process adaptation, and safeguarding model quality with modeling guidelines and testing, and the training workshop will be rounded off by assessing ISO 26262 readiness of controller functions. All theory will be illustrated via multiple practical examples, which participants can apply in their own workplaces.

At the conclusion of the training workshop, participants will have the option of completing an evaluation exercise to attain the SAE Certificate of Competency.
