Intercultural introduction presented by Horst Degen-Hientz, Process Expert at Kugler Maag Cie. Embedded World Conference, Nuremberg. February 26th - March, 1st 2013Back
Since the automotive safety standard ISO 26262 came in effect in November 2011, everybody in ECU projects knows the do`s and don'ts of the standards requirements, doesn’t he?
At Kugler Maag Cie, we are familiar with the development and implementation of this safety standard since the early discussions about the need of a specific automotive standard.
Meanwhile ISO 26262 is a ticket-to-trade in the global supply chain of the automotive industry. I.e., the standard is applied and needs to be adopted world-wide. Different regions, however, approach the adaptation of standard differently – due to the cultural background and companies’ policies. Adaptation and deployment is a local affair. One will ask what are the essentials adopting ISO26262 efficiently.
If theory is right there is one ISO 26262 standard valid for all countries. Really? Let’s have a winking look to some major Asian countries.
Neither over-achievement by the attempt of a literal interpretation nor a superficial implementation of the ISO 26262 standard supports us to assure the development of Automotive components that are safe in use. Instead, our talk offers some leverages in convincing clap speakers as well as model students. Do you know these guys, in APAC or US as well as in your company in Europe? Let’s persuade them by implementing the Automotive safety standard’s spirit effectively and sustainable.
