ISO 26262 Training in a Different Way - Welcome!

The trend towards complex Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD) gathers momentum in the automotive industry. Demands on development teams and the need for highly qualified experts with experience in functional safety (ISO 26262) engineering for ADAS and AD will grow.

This 4 days ISO 262626 teaching, workshop training and consulting event in the pleasant and productive working environment of Vöhlinschloss near Ulm (Bavaria) prepares you and your company for this challenge.

Lectures combined with interactive hands-on workshops explore all essential aspects of functional safety engineering and management.

Included are hot topics like cyber-security, evaluation and integration of semiconductor solutions, their challenges for user developers and manufacturers, SOTIF and EchoScrum® as an agile development model for ADAS and AD meeting ISO 26262 requirements.

Particants learn both intensively, theory and its application in best practices.

A panel discussion on "Experiences at OEMs and Tier-1s with agile development models" will adress critical issues every Functional Safety Manager will encounter in this field. First-hand insight into the views of OEMS, Tiers-1s and Consultant Specialists.

For all participants, who first want to become familiar with or refresh their understanding of the standard, the pre-workshop day provides an intensive training in fundamental concepts of ISO 26262.

Follow - up

Even with a practice-oriented training, it is in their daily project life that participants will face the crucial challenges, with the restrictions of project plan and budget. All participants will therefore be offered a post-seminar Coaching-on-the-Job. Knowledge, methods and skills conveyed at Vöhlinschloss will thereby be systematically consolidated and supplemented by special knowledge, for example on the qualification of software and hardware, or on key technologies such as sensors or signal transmission, on process and documentation requirements.

After approximately one year, the qualification as Certified Functional Safety Manager Proven in Practice may be completed.
