Functional Safety – Proof of Safety

When developing safety-critical systems in railway technology, aviation or in automotive technology, a standards-compliant proof of safety is an absolute requirement. We consider this as being everything which is needed for the commissioning and approval of safety-critical systems in the relevant domains.

Our experience in functional safety and proof of safety – for example, for series production acceptance of electronic vehicle components – consists of aspects such as

  • process development (front-loading, safety aspects in the product development process)
  • the evaluation of process and standards compatibility
  • the conducting of hazard and risk analyses (GuR, PHA), failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA, FMEDA), fault tree analysis (FTA)
  • the design and creation of requirement documents (safety concepts) in accordance with IEC 61508, ISO 26262, EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50129, DO-178B/C
  • the evaluation of verification and validation results and tests and consolidating these in proof of safety documents

Example Projects

  • Electromechanical Steering Support
  • Driver Assistence Systems
  • TCMS
  • Item-definition of a hybrid powertrain for a super sport vehicle (Ferrari)
  • Investigation of approval relevant conditions for a passenger car powertrain
  • Toolqualification by ISO 26262
  • Risk and hazard analysis and safety concept for a hybrid passenger car powertrain (Fiat Chrysler)
  • Gap analysis regarding the transition from QM to ASIL within the product development
  • Quality assurance and verification of a camera image processing and controlling system by DO-178C
