Fault Injection or Requirements Based Testing in ISO 26262? - In this ISO 26262 focused webinar we will examine the following questions- How many fault injection tests are really necessary to ensure a safe application execution? Is requirement-based testing a better and safer way to ensure high quality software?  Is fault injection testing a subset of requirements based testing, and does it deliver the desirable outcome? We will look at which test conditions are necessary and explain why both Fault Injection Testing and Requirement-Based Testing are included separately in the ISO 26262.

Making a Stand - Rigorous stand-alone testing of the many physical components of automobiles is done as a standard part of the development process to allow manufacturers to work out the potential problems of a model before it goes into full production. After all, it is conventional wisdom that it's much less expensive to eliminate a problem before mass production begins than to discover a problem and have to fix it afterwards.
