EUROFORUM Annual Conference ISO 26262:
An important lesson we all could learn at the 6. Annual Conference ISO 26262 in Stuttgart is that most technical terms regarding ISO 26262 are far more complex than was originally thought. It is therefore important to sharply distinguish terms and definitions. Here is a brief dictionary that informs about the most important technical terms regarding ISO 26262:
- Hazard: potential source of harm
- Harm: physical injury or damage to the health of people
- Fault: abnormal condition that can cause an element or an item to fail
- Failure: termination of the ability of an element or an item to perform a function as required
- Malfunctioning Behavior: failure or unintended behavior of the item with respect to the design intent for this item
