Safety Analyses in the Context of ISO 26262



Inductive and deductive safety analyses play an essential role within the ISO 26262 safety life cycle. Qualitative analysis methods are used to identify failures whereas quantitative methods are utilized to predict the frequency of failures.

This one-day training class introduces the fundamentals of common safety analysis methods such as FMEA, FMEDA, and FTA and discusses the role of these methods in the development of safety-related E/E systems as per ISO 26262.

Learning Objectives
  • Be able to recall important safety analysis methods
  • Understand the characteristics of inductive / deductive and quantitative / qualitative analysis methods
  • Know important reliability parameters (e.g. probability of failure, failure rate) and hardware metrics (SPFM, LFM, PMHF)
  • Have a deepened understanding of important safety analysis methods such as FMEA, FTA, and FMEDA
  • Have hands-on experience with fault tree construction and analysis
  • Know important objectives and requirements of ISO 26262 for conducting safety analyses during system, HW and SW development
  • Understand why multiple safety analysis methods need to be combined for higher ASILs
  • Recall the relationships between safety analyses and other ISO 26262 safety activities
Who Should Attend

This training class is designed for automotive professionals (safety engineers, safety managers, system, HW and SW developers, engineering team leads, and managers) involved in the development of safety-related automotive E/E systems as well as anyone interested in learning about safety analyses techniques used in the automotive domain.
