The following thought progression usually ensues:

 

  1. Oh no! - The process is mandated
  2. This is good enough! - Companies scramble to implement as well as they can to meet the minimum requirements
  3. Oops, this is expensive! - Over time, they determine they’ve implemented it in a very inefficient way and it’s costing way too much
  4. Let’s offshore it! – So they try to determine lower cost ways of achieving the same goal, like offshoring
  5. Well that didn’t work! – Cost is reduced but schedules are blown
  6. Let’s get smarter! – Efforts to optimize and automate are finally considered

 

ISO 26262 functional safety is no different than other process-heavy mandates.

Here's a thought: What if everyone bypassed steps 2-5 and went straight to 6?
