Tool Qualification Symposium 2014

Munich, 9-10 April 2014

Tool classification and qualification creates confidence into the usage of tools that are used for development of safety critical systems. Therefore the functional safety standards (ISO 26262, DO-178, IEC 61508, EN 50128) require classification and qualification of the development tools in safety relevant projects.

Various methods can be applied to create the required confidence into tools. Restriction of tool input and verification of output are possible process extensions that reduce the confidence requirements. Testing the used functionality for the absence of potential undetected errors is a frequently used method to provide the required confidence, qualification kits being available for many tools.

The first Tool Qualification Symposium in 2013 has brought together over 70 tool users and tool providers from different industrial sectors. The second tool qualification symposium will be open for presentations and tool qualification exhibitions.
