3. Being unfamiliar with the specific organizational structure, organizational management, and implementation items for development.
In order to develop LSI compliant with ISO26262 standard, it’s necessary to establish the safety management team led by a Functional Safety Manager inside development projects. And the safety management team should be independent from development projects, as required by the ISO26262 standard. The safety management team outside of development projects are generally under the control of a company-wide common department. These teams also create standard functional safety regulations, functional safety audits, functional safety assessments, and human resource management related to functional safety projects. In development projects based on the ISO26262 standard, the functional safety teams inside and outside of the projects should cooperate with each other and clarify the responsibilities.
Vtech supports optimizing organizational structure and operation of our customers by assigning engineers who are qualified as Functional Safety Managers and Engineers with a track record in functional safety operations inside and outside the projects.
