How Can reuse results of the Advanced Development Project for Production Development Project when executing ISO26262 project


Can a project in production development project achieve functional safety requirements when its previous project in the advanced development project doesn’t consider functional safety ?

It is not easy to satisfy functional safety requirements in production project unless being prepared in advanced development project.

Or it will take longer than normal production project.

How to improve this situation?

We can get a hint from SEooC section in the ISO 26262-10, Clause 9

A picture below depicts SEooC development and Item development process

In general, advanced development project starts without customer, so its situation is similar to SEooC development situation. During the project many assumptions are made.

If Advanced Development Project follows like SEooC development process, Production Development Projects might reuse previous results. Additional tasks might be to compare between assumptions and requirements and to bridge gaps.
