Integrated Solutions to Align Product Development and Safety Implementation

Advancements in Functional Safety  

Automotive electronics are becoming more sophisticated and technologically advanced every day. Because of this, it is increasingly complex to analyze failures and create a failsafe system which complies with functional safety standards such as ISO 26262. Automotive companies are most concerned with malfunctions of electrical and electronic systems that could result in human fatality, significant warranty cost and/or recalls.

 Understanding Safety Implementation

Understanding the product development lifecycle and aligning it with safety implementation is key to the successful release of any automotive safety related product. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions like PTC and Siemens PLM Software provide an integrated solution environment which addresses functional safety challenges for automotive electronics development.


Integrating Safety Implementation

Most organizations are at an infant stage of establishing safety processes, currently exploring best practices to integrate the safety lifecycle with their existing development processes, such as PLM or ALM. Thereafter comes the challenge involved with customization of existing systems and processes to incorporate aspects of functional safety. With increasing popularity and knowledge of ISO 26262, automotive OEM’s are realizing its importance and discovering the benefits. One of the most important aspects of ISO 26262 is tailoring the existing process to include functional safety as an integral part of their existing process. Not many organizations realize this and think about ISO 26262 implementation as an overhead expense instead. With automotive systems becoming more complex day by day, and with the introduction of autonomous systems, it is invaluable for such systems to have a built-in safety mechanism to encourage trust from buyers.


Engineering service organizations such as LHPES ( play an important role in understanding the gaps that currently exist with suppliers (including Tier 1) and OEMs for functional safety compliance and provide turnkey solutions to bridge such gaps, including experts in functional safety.
