Hazards to Functional Safety Requirements

Functional Safety management, in the automotive industry, involves creating a set of safety requirements, which have been derived from an initial hazard/risk assessment. Hazard assessment and requirements gathering are both tasks that tend to be less favorable among some, if not many, engineers, which can result in a less than adequate amount of time spend during those two phases. Hazard assessment tends to be performed in an Ad-hoc, open-ended manner; forcing engineers to ask, "Where do I start and when do I end the assessment?" We will look at ways to perform hazard assessment in a more systematic, less ad-hoc manner. We will also look at ways to systematically create a set of requirements directly from hazard assessment, by leveraging the use of Agile user stories. And we will discuss ways to integrate the waterfall-like nature of the safety life cycle into an Agile methodology.
