Day 1: Functional Safety Management - Concept and System Level Development

Functional Safety Management is an essential basis for the development of safety-related electronics in an automotive organization. The first day of the seminar will show the different aspects of Functional Safety Management and the responsibilities of the organization and safety management. We will provide an overview of the required organizational responsibilities, project management, and supporting processes.


Day 2: Safety in Hardware Level Development 

Day two will provide instruction in the safety goal process by examining random hardware failures and Hardware architectural metrics using Failure Mode, Effect, and Diagnostic Analysis. We will cover the safety-oriented HW development process, including required work products, procedures, and methods for developing a compliant ISO 26262 product. We will discuss the necessary planning and implementation of the technical safety concept, the analysis of possible HW faults by studying the analysis of single-point faults - SPF, residual faults - RF, and potential multi-point faults MPF.


Day 3: Safety in the Software development process, including an introduction in SOTIF and Cybersecurity.

Day three covers the techniques and measures that encompass a safety-oriented SW development process. We will investigate Automotive Safety Integrity Levels - ASIL and implementation required work products, procedures, and processes. We will discuss the different development phases and the specific requirement for implementing, testing, and verification of the various software levels.  


On-Line Certification Test

After the workshop, the trainees have the opportunity to take an online, three-hour Certification test. This option is available for all trainees for up to 30 days after the training. The Successful completion of >70% correct answers by participants will receive a Siemens Professional Functional Safety Engineer Automotive – PFSEA certificate provided by Siemens, a powerhouse in engineering activities worldwide. Each trainee will have two attempts to pass the course. The PFSEA logo can be printed on your business card and displayed in official correspondence, and uploaded to the participant's Linkedin page.

The certification test will be delivered through an online proctored testing platform. Further instructions will be provided during the workshop.
