During the course you will learn how to understand and apply the following techniques:

  • Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Fault tree analysis (FTA)
  • ISO 26262 hardware architectural metrics
  • Evaluation of safety goal violations due to random hardware failures (both methods)
  • Dependent failure analysis (DFA)

The course includes:

  • In-depth lectures mixed with interactive group work
  • Extensive practical exercises
  • Certificate for successful completion

  Course Details 

On Day 1 we’ll give an introduction to the role of safety analysis in ISO 26262, then cover design failure mode and effects analysis (dFMEA). We’ll explain the basics of FMEA and conduct a series of exercises adopting a structured, multi-step approach to FMEA.

On Day 2, we’ll cover fault tree analysis (FTA), introducing the basic concepts and principles of FTA and describe the process of developing FTAs to support the requirements of ISO 26262 Part 4 and 5. We’ll also cover the differences between qualitative and quantitative FTAs in the context of ISO 26262 and conduct structured exercises to demonstrate the principles of FTA when used to support ISO 26262.

On Day 3, we’ll cover both ISO 26262 hardware metrics and dependent failure analysis (DFA). The ISO 26262 hardware metrics section will cover the single point fault metric (SPFM), latent fault metric (LFM) and the two methods for evaluating safety goal violation due to random hardware failures. The DFA section will describe the process of performing a DFA to support the requirements of ISO 26262 Part 4.
