ISO 26262

ISO 26262 (Road vehicles — Functional safety) is an adaptation of IEC 61508 for the automotive industry.   It addresses possible hazards due to malfunctions in electronic/electrical safety related systems in passenger vehicles up to 3500kg.

Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL’s) are determined by selecting Severity, Probability of Exposure and Controllability for each hazard to be assessed.  These ASIL’s specify the safety requirements to achieve an acceptable level of residual risk.

Reliability Workbench contains tools for ISO 26262 compliant safety analyses: FMECA, Reliability Block Diagrams, and FaultTree+ which provides fault tree analysis, event tree analysis and Markov analysis.   Reliability Workbench also includes the failure rate prediction module that provides recognised industry standards including IEC TR 62380, MIL HDBK 217F and Quanterion 217Plus.
