With tens of thousands of automotive parts in circulation, it can take hours of time shuffling through manufacturing data sheet to link the correct failure rate model and failure mode model to parts in your engineering Bill of Material. This creates an inevitable delay in product development, countless hours of duplicated work for engineering teams, and additional costs to projects.
ISO 26262-5:2018 specifies the hardware architectural metrics requirements for product development at the hardware level for all automotive applications. Part 5 aims at reducing random hardware failures that impact functional safety to an acceptable level through hardware design, integration, and testing. The stringent ISO 26262-5 standard forces engineering teams to trace all hardware parts for their safety impact.
Saves engineering hours for parts research to match failure rates model and calculates a realistic failure rate to reflect the actual design. Customers can reuse the different hardware parts and matched failure rate and failure mode models for future projects.
See a demo of LHP's FMEDA Analysis Tool to learn how we can save you time, money, and speed up the product development lifecycles.
LHP’s FMEDA Analysis Tool is a repository of standard automotive hardware parts that are stored in the cloud with Ansys Medini. This library lives in Medini and is imported to the Medini project file for customer consumption.
LHP’s R&D team of engineers have included hundreds of parts in the library to get engineers started. If the part is on the market and the fit does not change, the parts will stay in the library as evergreen.
The evergreen nature of our library allows team to build repositories of known parts, linked to the correct failure rate model and failure mode model, to eliminate re-work and save time and money.
On average engineers can spend up to an hour researching a single part number.
This process can take up to 90% of total project time depending on the Bill of Material.
The FMEDA (Failure Modes Effects and Diagnostic Analysis) is a methodology for the detailed determination of failure causes and their impact on the system and can be applied in early phases of the system development very efficiently to detect weak points early. FMEDA is utilized to evaluate the design to determine whether the design compliance with ISO 26262 Part 5 hardware architectural metrics requirements.
LHP's FMEDA Analysis Tool is the supporting part to the hardware architectural metrics calculation in FMEDA which is required for ISO 26262 Part 5.
