Vector Forum 2008: Functional Safety

The Vector Forum 2008 was held in Stuttgart on the topic "functional safety" on 05. June 2008. Close to 100 managers from industry and Experts from Vector Consulting Services met for a half-day exchange of experiences. Industry presentations and discussions centered on questions such as "How to implement functional safety?" and "What experiences can we share across companies?"

Safety-relevant issues are increasingly relevant for E/E engineering and must be addressed both efficienty and effectively. Functional safety was addressed by six presentations done by Airbus, BMW, Continental, Hella, Kanzlei Dr. Erben and Vector Consulting Services. Industry experts provided their own experiences how to introduce and assure functional safety in E/E engineering. Standards IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 were underlined from both an economic perspective as well as how to sustainably achieve a safety culture.

Until late in the evening participants discussed this hot topic during a dinner and evaluated challenges and solutions from their various perspectives.
