Talk: Quality as Basis for Safety

At least 75% of all issues popping up during product development applying ISO 26262 have their roots in deficiencies of Software and Systems Engineering as they arerequiredevenfornon-safetycritical systems. These deficiencies have to be identified and prevented right from the start in order to avoid exploding costs.
