Two-Day Course Overview

This two-day advanced training for automotive safety analysis of failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), failure modes, effects and diagnostic analysis (FMEDA), and fault tree analysis (FTA) will address the requirements of ISO 26262:2018, the standard for road vehicles — functional safety, with detailed examples from Parts 4, 5 and 6.

ISO 26262 Training Topics

Day 1

  • Brief ISO 26262 recap
