Achieving ISO 26262 Compliance to Ensure Safety AND Security
The bits and bolts of the automotive industry has kept pace with the latest advances in computing technology. A typical new car includes over one gigabyte of executable software, and automotive electronics accounts for about 25% of its capital cost. Adapting to such dramatic increase in software has spawned errors of process that have resulted in unfortunate loss of lives, countless recalls, and expensive litigation. Added to this, the advent of the connected car has served to dramatically increase the number of possible points of failure. To curb this level of risk and to enforce software quality, automotive OEMs increasingly demand ISO 26262 compliance from their supply chain. This ISO 26262 Functional Safety Standard defines a product safety life cycle based on a risk-oriented approach, encapsulated by the assignment of an Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) to each system or subsystem under development. For every ASIL, the standard defines the processes related to requirement definition, implementation, verification, and validation, with traceability between each of these phases also being a key factor in the achievement of compliance. It is incumbent on suppliers seeking compliance to document how their a mature and safety focused development environment is in accordance with the standard throughout this development lifecycle. This presentation will describe a tools-based methodology that can be used to cost-effectively manage an ISO 26262 compliant product development life cycle by providing an interactive compliance roadmap to help manage the software planning, development, verification, and regulatory activities of ISO 26262 Part 6, Product Development: Software Level (ISO 26262-6). The methodology guides development teams through the generation of fully compliant plans, document checklists, transition checklists, standards and other required lifecycle documents. When integrated with software verification tools, the compliance management system can also streamline verification processes, further reducing thousands of hours of documentation effort and achieving significant reductions in planning costs.
