DFMEAs Training for Monitoring and System Response - ISO 26262:2018

Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two-day training addresses the use of FMEA-MSR which is to be used to supplement the DFMEA by analyzing the effectiveness of diagnostic monitoring and system response in maintaining functional safety.

This part of the AIAG-VDA FMEA handbook and the approaches discussed and employed in this course are consistent with ISO 26262, which is the Functional Safety standard that is applied to Safety Related Systems that include electric/electronic systems installed in production passenger vehicles, trucks & busses, and motorcycles.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the use of the supplemental FMEA for monitoring and response, potential failures which might occur under customer operating conditions are analyzed with respect to their effect on the system or vehicle. How this tool can be used to identify safety risk for ISO 26262
  • Provide a hands-on approach to the DFMEA with MSR process and their relationship to ISO 26262 deliverables
  • Review example applied to ISO 26262
