Adopting ISO 26262: lessons learned in ramping up on ISO 26262-compliant development
Model-Based Design allows early verification of embedded controls during development such that errors can be detected and fixed when the cost of correction is comparatively lower. With the advent of electrified powertrain applications, design complexity and amount of new content are driving engineers to build a comprehensive model-based verification workflow. However, due to the impact on many aspects of the development process and different engineering roles, such model-based verification can be challenging to create and implement. Companies doing Rapid Prototyping (RP) often try to extend RP directly into a production verification workflow by incrementally improving individual verification activity as oppose to take a holistic view of the entire process. The down side of such an approach as those companies transition to ISO 26262 compliant development process, the investment required for implementing such a process as well as the risk of not being able to integrate individual verification activity at the end are high. This presentation will share common experience of implementing a practical model-based verification strategy based on lessons learned.
