Osmosis 2020: FMEDA and Verification: A Symbiotic Relationship
Product Manager for Functional Safety, Jörg Grosse
Quantitative FMEDA is crucial for compliance with ISO 26262. However, functional verification of safety mechanisms is at least as important. Are these two tasks truly independent? Can we leverage one to carry out the other? Yes, we can! Verification results can underpin assumptions that boost FMEDA metrics. On the other hand, modeling of the safety architecture may quickly reveal functional bugs, even without injecting faults. In this presentation, we explore both sides of the safety coin. Using examples extrapolated from real projects, we demonstrate how our customers have dramatically improved their hardware development flow.
