Accellera formed a working group of functional safety practitioners and experts from the industry to develop a standard that will provide a standardization definition of the Functional Safety data exchange to improve automation, interoperability, and traceability of the implementation of the Functional Safety guidelines and best practices during the lifecycle. The standard plans to capture a data model, language, or format to exchange data seamlessly among functional safety work products and across layers of the supply chain. This workshop presents some of the challenges in the industry for managing the exchange of data related to functional safety and then the goals and mission of the Accellera Functional Safety Working Group towards a new standard to address those challenges.
