LDRA Compliance Management System Details Steps for Realizing ISO 26262 Standard Compliance

LDRA, the leading provider of safety-critical software verification tools and software best practices, releases the LDRA Compliance Management System (LCMS) to provide companies with the proper infrastructure enabling ISO 26262 compliance. LCMS for ISO 26262 walks customers through the fully compliant plans, document and transition checklists, standards and other lifecycle documents, and problem reports to help customers manage software planning, development, verification, and regulatory activities of ISO 26262 Part 6, Product Development: Software Level (ISO 26262-6). LCMS for ISO 26262-6 details a process that ensures software functional safety at dramatically reduced project costs.

Compliance Mandated to Manage Liability

Although ISO 26262 is not government mandated, automotive OEMs have adopted the standard for their supply chain as a way to ensure quality and to manage risk and liabilities. For suppliers, this demand for standard compliance imposes a need for explicit processes and documentation that provides process and product visibility and enables process assessment by OEM Safety Assessors sent to audit suppliers. LCMS includes the detailed document templates outlined by the ISO 26262 standard and walks the LCMS customer through the required activities needed to gain approval for each stage of development.

LCMS’s comprehensive compliance management can become the process backbone underpinning compliance for automotive suppliers. LCMS comes complete with a document review management system, comprehensive review and analysis management system, and problem reporting management system with activity checklists.

Building on LDRA’s more than forty years of high-assurance software quality and certification experience, LCMS helps companies transition through the stages, automating the process to ensure that progress from one stage to another is seamless. While the compliance tools can work with any customer tool chain, customers who integrate LCMS for ISO 26262-6 with the LDRA tool suite are able to streamline their verification process, further reducing thousands of hours of documentation effort and up to 50 percent reduction of planning costs.

“To reduce cost while improving quality, today’s automobiles have become highly dependent on safety-critical electronics that involve a complex matrix of specifications, interrelationships, and proofs that the system fully functions as intended,” noted Ian Hennell, LDRA Operations Director. “LCMS provides a foundation for these high-assurance development environments, streamlining the processes and ensuring that companies can achieve standards compliance in less time and for less cost.”

To provide additional flexibility and security for customers, LDRA offers LCMS for ISO 26262-6 to operate in either cloud-based or locally hosted environments. LCMS Local is installed and secured behind an applicant’s firewall to address security-sensitive requirements while LCMS Cloud delivers a more economical option for companies with greater flexibility. Both options include a two-day quick start training.

Hands-on Demonstrations of LCMS for ISO 26262

The capabilities of the LCMS for ISO 26262-6 will be demonstrated at Embedded World in Nürnberg, Germany, February 25–27, 2014 in Hall 4-526. As well, an online video www.ldra.com/lcms-iso26262-demo highlights product features and walks project managers, developers, quality assurance managers through the step-by-step implementation of the ISO 26262 automotive compliance process.
