LHP has standardized the steps towards compliance to ISO 26262. By applying a controlled recipe that addresses business and technical needs, organizations can leverage the most important features of ISO 26262 at the right time. 

By working with our partners, we have made these steps feasible and cost-effective for small startup organizations and large established multi-nationals. 


We will work with your team to implement an ISO 26262 compliant workflow relevant to your product.  This includes ensuring proper functional safety management is in place, defining relevant development activities, and installing supporting processes as required by ISO 26262.

Answers to Your Functional Safety Challenges

We will lead you through the entire process, enabling you to get back to the work you do best. We work with you to streamline your management structure to maximize the value of your organization, identify the
necessary safety requirements, and create a system for verification and validation. 

Training your team on the latest standards

LHPU and TÜV-NORD have partnered to offer training and certification under TÜV NORD`s market leading “Functional Safety Certified Automotive Engineer” (FSCAE) program. TÜV NORD, an internationally recognized and certified organization with experienced professionals having many years of practical know how in functional safety and the relevant standards associated.

Functional Safety Management
Safety Management defines the roles and responsibilities that members of a functional team will have in the development, verification, production, and after release for production phases of a product.  Safety Management work products include, but are not limited to, the following: 

Organization-specific rules & processes
Safety Plan
Functional Safety Assessment Plan
Confirmation Measure Reports

Product Design

Within the concept phase of a product, architectural information is defined, Functional Safety Requirements are produced, and validation of the safety goals are planned and ultimately executed.  We will guide your team to develop the following work products, where applicable: 

Item Definition
Hazard Analysis & Risk Assessment
Safety Goals
Functional Safety Concept
During the development phase of a product, a system safety concept is created including an internal architecture with identification of internal subsystems and their functional allocation.  Technical Safety Requirements are created, further decomposed to their respective hardware and software requirements, designed, implemented, and verified for compliance.  Guidance is provided to identify the tools that will be used for development and verification and whether they require tool qualification.  We will support your team through development activities and the steps to achieve verification.  Product development activities include, but are not limited to, the following:

Technical Safety Requirements Specification
System Design Specification
Release for Production
Functional Safety Assessment
Safety Validation
Item Integration and Test
Hardware Safety Requirements Design
Evaluation of Hardware Architectural Metrics
Evaluation of Safety Goal Violations Due to Random Hardware Failures
Hardware Integration & Test
Software Architectural Design
Software Unit Design & Implementation
Software Unit Test
Software Integration & Test
Verification of Safety Requirements


Production & Operation

Prior to release for production, a production process needs to be developed and maintained.  Work products to be developed to support a release for production include, but are not limited to, the following:

Production Plan
Maintenance Plan
Field Observations Instructions
Repair Instructions
Decommissioning Instruction



Supporting Processes

Our streamlined documentation process and vetted templates will support your team in the transition to becoming ISO compliant.  Configuration Management is necessary to maintain integrity of all product configurations, software lifecycle data, tools, and documentation.  Documentation Management facilitates an effective and repeatable documentation management process.  Change Management enables the analyses of and control changes of the product.  Supporting processes include, but are not limited to, the following:

Distributed Developments
Configuration Management
Change Management
Documentation Management
Specification & Management of Safety Requirements
Confidence in the use of Software Tools
Qualification of Software/Hardware Components
Proven In Use Argument
