Development of Configuration Management System for ISO26262

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.26 No.2


The functional safety standard ISO 26262 was published in November 2011. It is a functional safety standard for electrical and/or electronic systems within road vehicles. Compliance with this standard requires that the development process be defined and that numerous documents be created as proof that the development process has been implemented. The documents to be created in accordance with the development process were defined in advance and a configuration management system was developed to be capable of storing them together with the review results for each event during development. In order to realize traceability, a proprietary function was developed that automatically extracts items that are considered to require management for the purpose of functional safety from documents that are entered in predefined formats. This function is capable of displaying a list of the items, as well as a list of the definitions of the relations between items.
This system contributes to compliance with ISO 26262 and contains the increasing operational and administrative load.
