Compliance with ISO 26262, IEC 61508, Automotive SPICE, CMMI and more
codebeamer enables you to ensure consistency, traceability, and the use of mature automotive development processes throughout the lifecycle.
As a TÜV “Trusted Tool” certified development platform, codebeamer is used successfully by automotive OEMs and suppliers around the world to comply with ISO 26262, IEC 61508, and other regulations.
In automotive systems development, safety, reliability, and traceability are critical, and are consequently the main concern of product developers.
Relevant regulations and guidelines include IEC 61508, ISO 26262, ISO 15504 (Automotive SPICE), and CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) for safety-critical automotive software and device developers.
These standards in general stipulate:
- the need for consistency, transparency and traceability on requirements and processes
- comprehensive risk management and quality assurance activities
- the use of effective and mature development methods and processes
- clear documentation of artifacts and processes throughout the lifecycle.
Challenges of Compliance in Automotive Product Development
A rapid growth in the use of electrical, electronic and programmable safety-related embedded systems in passenger cars has propelled the need for safety standards. One of the most important standards is ISO 26262, defining functional safety guidelines for automotive safety systems.
Automotive development companies and teams have to understand and meet the requirements of further standards and guidelines including IEC 61508 (Functional Safety of Electrical/Electronic/Programmable Electronic Safety-related Systems), Automotive SPICE, and CMMI among others.
Car manufacturers and suppliers have to face the problem of managing large networks of geographically dispersed manufacturing facilities, vetting OEM suppliers, and qualifying development tools. All this greatly increases the complexity of automotive development, which calls for the use of a smart, future-proof software tool such as codebeamer.
