Functional Safety & SOTIF Integration, Testing and Review Training

Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two-day, hands-on seminar is intended to offer insight into, and hands-on experience with, the linkages between various aspects of the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) process. Specifically, the development and linkage of Block Diagrams, Interface Matrix, System and Design FMEAs and Design Verification and Validation (Test) Plans (DVPs) are addressed.

SFMEAs are performed during the Design phase of APQP for Risk Management and Prevention. SFMEAs are used to identify Special Requirements, Critical Items and Key Characteristics to assist in the flow-down of requirements to sub-assemblies and components.

This seminar includes breakout exercise sessions using an example of appropriate complexity so that the participant has the opportunity to grasp both System FMEA and Design FMEA concepts. A key part of this course is applying the concepts during the breakout sessions.
