8:00 am - 10:30 am A | HOW MUCH SAFETY IS ENOUGH: BALANCING SAFETY MECHANISMS VS PRODUCT AVAILABILITY IN DIFFERENT AUTOMATION LEVELS

Riccardo Vincelli - Director of the Functional Safety Competence Center, Renesas Electronics Europe GmbH
Safety concepts under ISO 26262 require a clear documentation and argumentation of how to deal with violations of safety goals by introducing either hardware or software safety mechanisms in order to maintain or bring the vehicle back in safe operational state. The complexity however for chip manufacturers working in product lines for autonomous applications with no direct line of communication to the car maker, face the risk of introducing unnecessary safety mechanisms by assuming the car maker’s needs that would either create unnecessary high costs for the chip manufacturer and could still end in limiting the products availability and therefore affect the vehicle’s controllability. During this workshop, we will examine case studies where the introduction of too many safety mechanisms has compromised the system availability and how can semiconductors tackle this during the initial stages of safety concept design.

11:00 am - 1:30 pm B | UNDERSTANDING PREDICTIVE FAILURE ANALYSIS, DATASETS AND TOOLS

Jyotika Athavale - Principal Engineer, Senior Functional Safety and RAS Architect, Intel Corporation
This workshop will introduce the role of predictive analytics in supporting FMEA and FMDA for an overview of failure patterns and early quality control. We will cover how to progress to predictive failure analysis by utilizing big data from multiple data logs and sets of different product lines to identify failure trends and rates in semiconductor devices. There will be an introduction to machine learning strategies used in component level diagnostics and how to create a collaborative network of information that will help in the development of improved and more efficient safety mechanisms.

2:30 pm - 5:00 pm C | FMEA ALIGNMENT – INTRODUCTION TO THE NEW 2019 AIAG AND VDA FMEA GUIDELINE

Mike Bucala - Vehicle Systems Quality Engineer/ Functional Safety Manager, Daimler Trucks North America
In June 2019, the first edition of the AIAG & VDA FMEA Handbook has been released for the automotive industry which acts as the interface between the two previous separate standards. The purpose of this is the assistance of suppliers in the development of “Design FMEA, Process FMEA and Supplemental FMEA for Monitoring and System Response”. Join this workshop to understand how this new method can help functional safety managers in reducing complexity caused from product complexity and distributed development in this new guideline developed by the two leading standardization bodies in the field.
