In order to perform any ISO 26262 Random Safety Analysis, it is important to achieve an understanding of the various types of faults that need to be analyzed and handled. This requires a Static Analysis process.
Static Analysis can be performed in many ways, but the most common today is a manual effort to work through the various design components and understand which are the most vulnerable to various faults and which of those faults can have a significant impact to component operation. If Safety Mechanisms (SMs) are being used to eliminate the effect of specific faults, it is also important to understand which faults they trap.
Optima-SA, the Optima static analysis solution, automatically performs this characterization, generating a fault list that may then be used for analysis solutions.
