and Validation

Learn how to test and validate your functional safety design and how to create a convincing safety case.

The participants are given in-depth considerations of test procedures, test methodology, verification and validation processes and assessments with regard to the design of safety-related systems. Verification and validation are deemed essential from the standpoint of communication, legal approval and product placement; therefore, these aspects are attended to in detail. In the practical part of the course, participants would be able to create a test plan for the safety-relevant area and coordinate it with the overall project management plan. Detailed knowledge will be obtained on test selection procedures and available methods of automated test design. Safety requirements would be expressed in models with the adequate selection of tools and methods to adapt a test process to the conditions of a safety-critical project/product. The students can integrate the test results into the safety case as evidence through test reports.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Create a test plan for a safety-relevant area

  • Coordinate test plan with the overall project management plan

  • Have detailed knowledge of test selection procedures

  • Have knowledge of available methods of automated test design

  • Define safety requirements in models

  • Select appropriate tools and methods to adapt a test process to the conditions of a safety-critical project/product

  • Use test reports to evidence the integration of the test results into the safety case

Hardware (required): Computer with Internet connection, working speakers and microphone.

Software: Chrome browser.

Course Typically Offered: Live Online in Spring quarter (April - mid June) and Summer quarter (mid June - August).

Prerequisites: Students should have basic knowledge of system safety and functional safety and its application to automotive engineering in the scope of ISO 26262. At the very least, courses “NIT-FSBA-01: Systems, Functions and Safety”, "NIT-FSBA-05: Functional Safety Standards in Automotive" and "NIT-FSEA-01: Functional Safety Design in Automotive" should have been completed beforehand, but also NIT-FSBA-02: Safety Analysis Methods, NIT-FSBA-03: Fault Tolerant Systems and NIT-FSBA-04: Managing Quality, Processes and Projects in Automotive, are highly recommended.

Next Step: To further practice and deepen the knowledge in automotive functional safety, consider taking the remaining courses from the Functional Safety Engineering in Automotive catalog (NIT-FSEA-XX), and for wider automotive engineering knowledge, courses from the Automotive Engineering catalog (NIT-AU-XX).
