Description:

Functional safety has gained momentum across all industries. Standards such as IEC 61508 or ISO 26262 as well as product liability mandate a thorough management of specifications, analyses and implementations of functional safety. Especially ISO 26262 has penetrated the entire automotive industry at a rapid speed and is mandatory in all safety-critical E/E engineering.

Functions such as adaptive cruise control, crash protection systems, active body control and ESP are increasing in complexity and taking an ever more active role in controlling the car. These functions are realized by systems of sensors, actuators and interconnected electronic control units. The systems must be designed to function under a variety of operating conditions and must adhere to a number of mechanical, hardware and software constraints. In order to be able to manage the emerging product liability risks associated with such systems as well as ensuring the high level of quality required of automotive systems, significant improvements to engineering processes are necessary.

This training with Vector's internationally renowned experts on functional safety introduces to the basic techniques for specification, analysis, testing and proving the safety of systems. We show how to apply these techniques in the context of a specific system development. You get introduced to the handling of ISO 26262 to connect both safety and efficiency needs. We describe our experiences in adapting companies’ development processes to conform to ISO 26262. We detail key success factors in overcoming mentioned challenges and provide practical examples from working with global OEMs and tier-one suppliers on implementing safety standards in E/E development. Based on real examples, we show how safety concepts are implemented, so you can transfer what you have learned quickly to your own environment.

Audience:

This training addresses engineers and managers in systems, hardware and software development, project managers, system and software engineers, analysts, consultants, quality managers from companies in all industries and sizes, who need to better understand functional safety and the specific requirements and solutions.

Trainer:

Dr. Arnulf Braatz is a manager at Vector Consulting Services. Previously he worked as a project manager in development projects as well as a software architect. Mr. Braatz supports companies worldwide to advance their development processes, evaluate and improve architectures, and ramp up functional safety capabilities. He works across industries in functional safety and cyber security thus understanding the current relevant standards.

Other locations

We offer this training as In-house trainings at your facilities worldwide, and also in our Vector offices worldwide.

In-house formats

Do you want to make this training directly to your own examples and challenges? Looking for a workshop that delivers practical exercises to your environment? Then, we suggest this in-house training, where you can adjust focus, speed and schedules themselves. We also offer dedicated crash courses for employees and management. Just send us a brief mail.

Description

Systems Engineering is the foundation for successful products and architectures. You learn to think in systems, to structure complex tasks, to evaluate dependencies and to model systems. Complex systems with hardware, software and mechanics are a special challenge. Systems Engineering provides the methods to deal with it.

Our training introduces to systematic systems engineering. The training is based on the applicable industry standards, such as INCOSE, CMMI and ASPICE. Many practical examples ensure hands-on learning that goes beyond the mere theory of the systems engineering standards. You will become familiar with frequently used methods of systems engineering in the areas of system requirements, system architecture, system integration and system testing. In particular, you understand the interaction of the technical core processes between system and software level. With our practice-oriented training, you will be able to transfer what you have learned into your everyday project life and use it productively.

Contents and Agenda

  • Introduction to Systems Engineering
  • System theory: What is a system? Interplay of the system, software and hardware levels. Organizational structure versus process
  • Concepts and Methods of Systems Engineering. Systems engineering process model. Structured documentation. Traceability
  • Systems modeling with SysML
  • Development Process in Systems Engineering: Requirements, Architecture, Integration, Verification and Validation, Maintenance and Updates
  • Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
  • Agile Systems Engineering and Agile Scaling
  • Quality models and system level assessment, e.g. ASPICE and CMMI relevance, architecture, evaluation, safety, cybersecurity, complexity, technical debt
  • Concrete implementation and best practice (Vector experiences and practical tips for introducing and improving systems engineering in your own company, tool support)
  • Questions from the practice of the participants

Basis for the training is the Curriculum on INCOSE.
