Software Development For Safety-Critical Environments, How Safe Are You?

Watch the Seminar on Demand

The common objective of standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508, and guidance such as DO-178B/C is to ensure that software will perform as intended and reliably in mission and safety-critical environments.

While all adopt a very similar risk-based philosophy they differ very significantly in their approach and methodologies. The emphasis of ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 is on process standards across every stage of the product lifecycle whereas DO-178B/C and is objective-orientated, less prescriptive on process, relates to software and certification is project-based. All mandate or recommend the adoption of coding standards. In this seminar, presented at ESC India, you will learn more about:

  • the key differences in approach for standards such as ISO 26262, IEC 61508 and DO-178B/C
  • the implications of these different approaches on the certification process and tool selection
  • the role and fit of static analysis and coding standards within these processes
