ISO 26262 FSE for Automotive course

4-day training - limited participation to 15 persons

02.04.2012 - 05.04.2012 Melbourne

This vocational qualification training of the TÜV Functional Safety Program supports engineers (and/or persons of the functional safety business) to deepen their knowledge and their experience in order to achieve a worldwide acknowledged know-how and practical experience within the area of functional safety according to ISO 26262 international standard.

Target Group

Developers, project leaders, quality managers and tester who are mainly engaged in the development of safety-related systems for use in cars on the basis of the draft international standard ISO 26262. This training imparts basic knowledge, which enables developers to transfer the requirements of the standard ISO/DIS 26262 most effectively.



  • Functional safety of electric, electronic and programmable systems

Safety Philosophy

  • Definition of risk, principle of risk reduction
  • Introduction to various classification systems (categories, SIL, ASIL)
  • Comparison and relation of classification systems to each other

Regulations related to automotive system

  • Homologation rules
  • Product liability laws

International Standard ISO 26262

  • General methods and requirements
  • Consideration of life cycle aspects of safety-related systems and components
  • Requirements concerning Management of Functional Safety
  • Requirements for the evaluation/judgement of Functional Safety
  • Definition of requirements according to the chosen ASIL
  • Meaning of Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)
  • Consideration of faults and fault models
    • Fault: random fault, systematic fault, fault caused by handling, fault during operation
    • Fault models: stuck-at, DC and extended DC-fault model
  • Definition of measures against faults
    • Fault avoidance
    • Fault detection and fault control
  • Consideration during design, development and production phase
    • Safety requirement specification
    • Verification and validation plan
    • Examples of :
      • hardware design and verification
      • Software design and verification
      • model-based software design
  • Calculation of the probability of violation of the safety goal
    • Derivation of Reliability Block Diagram for different systems
    • Architectural metrics, diagnostic coverage, single point faults metric, latent faults
    • Influence of diagnostic-test-interval on probability figures
    • Dependent failures, cascading failures, common cause failures
    • Redundant systems and common cause factors
    • Example calculation
  • Constraints and conditions for the phases
    • Commissioning, implementation, operation, maintenance
    • Operation
  • Qualification of hardware components
  • Safety elements out of context (SEooC)
  • Use of proven-in-use argument
