Critical systems must be delivered quickly, yet with the highest quality. Scaleable agile development thus is the call of the day. Yet, cybersecurity and functional security require demonstrable quality with every iteration and delivery. Therefore, agile increments or even continuous delivery processes such as DevOps and Over-The-Air require lightweight effective release processes. The practical contribution shows industry experiences at Bosch and Vector and offers cross-industry impulses in the continuous assurance of consistency and quality.

The success of any product depends on the skills and competence of the product manager. This webinar with Dr. Christof Ebert introduces to product management for IT and software. It provides concrete guidelines about key success factors as well as a case study. The webinar highlights the presenters broad experiences introducing and improving product management in different IT and software domains around the world. To allow better transfer of achieved results to your own settings, the webinar provides concrete guidelines about key success factors. An empirical study from implementing the product management competence in a Fortune 100 organization is presented. The webinar is hands-on and allows participants to raise their own respective needs and challenges. Presenter Dr. Christof Ebert, managing director at Vector Consulting Services will share his broad experiences in introducing and improving product management in companies around the world.

Product lines are an extremely important lever to control complexity and to achieve quality throughout. New applications are usually faster to market, if they have already been developed for a different market. Development, integration and production cost, and thus the overall product cost decrease. Due to the reuse and the lower proportion to integrate components, companies such as Robert Bosch, Siemens and Volkswagen have achieved efficiency gains of 10-30 %. For instance, we were able to reduce the cost of rework over the entire product life cycle by 20-50% with reuse-oriented requirements engineering. Our presentation shows industry experience with Stihl and offers guidance in the implementation of product line concepts with a focus on requirements engineering. We show how requirements are formalized so that dependencies and reuse concepts can be implemented early and consistently. Thus, the requirements are precisely formulated and are used to ensure consistency and completion. They can still be understood and validated by stakeholders of diverse backgrounds. Concrete results from the reuse concepts, the underlying chnage management and PREEvision tool support at Stihl are presented. We highlight experiences in setting up a product line concept in an existing product scope.

Functional safety and cyber security must be systematically developed and implemented in parallel. Currently this is often done in piecemeal, as industry standards and methods for safety and security are quite isolated from each other. This previously established separation of the two "disciplines" each with its own standards and procedures is not sustainable because of dependencies and mutual influences are overlooked. In addition, a separate procedure is inefficient because many functions have to be touched several times. Essential is an integrated approach for the development and verification of requirements in order to make these two quality requirements manageable. We show in this presentation the systematic and continuous development and implementation of safety and security requirements. Hella corporation illustrates the method and advantages of such combined safety and security approach using the example of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System). The article thus gives a good overview of the methodology and the art of integrated engineering for Safety and Cyber Security. At the same show our industry experience, as the methodology is implemented effectively. Many lessons learned from practical help to transfer in their own environment of the participants.

Functional safety is gaining importance across different industries. The standard ISO 26262 has fast become an industry reference, way beyond automotive. Together with product liability it enforces a professional implementation of functional safety. This presentation at the Vector Congress provides an introduction to the principles and introduces the basic techniques for specification, analysis, verification and validation of functional safety. We will show with hands-on experiences from Vector Consulting Services how the standard is applied, and how processes and tools can support it. In particular we provide useful hints about the introduction of safety engineering in a company. Finally we provide an outlook on ciurrent trends such as security and functional safety, and the edition 2 of ISO 26262 to appear in 2016 as community draft.

Requirements Engineering in safety-critical systems must systematically develop and evaluate requirements for functional safety and cyber security in parallel. Currently this is done in a piecemeal, because the industry standards for safety and security are still placed highly isolated from each other. This previously established separation of the two "disciplines" each with its own standards and procedures is not sustainable because of dependencies and mutual influences are overlooked. In addition, a separate procedure is inefficient because many functions have to be touched several times. An integrated approach for the development and verification of requirements is essential in order to make these two quality requirements manageable. Our presentation shows with practical industry experience of Vector and Hella how the dependencies and interactions between safety and security requirements in Requirements Engineering methodically and systematically be considered. First, we describe a practical approach to the safety requirements. On this basis we integrate development for security requirements. The advantages of an integrated safety and security requirements engineering methodology are illustrated tool based on a specific example.

Functional safety is gaining importance across different industries. Standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 together with product liability enforce a professional implementation of functional safety. We will show with hands-on experiences how the standard is applied, and how processes and tools can support it.
