What is SCDL?
SCDL (Safety Concept Description Language) is a semi-formal notation to describe ISO 26262 safety architectures, namely safety concepts. This includes safety requirement specifications, element architectures, requirements allocation on elements, ASIL assignments, decompositions for safety mechanisms and others. SCDL as a vendor-independent language targets modeling methods for ISO 26262 by providing intuitive graphical representations and
straightforward processes. Tools based on SCDL support the development, design, analysis, and verification of ISO 26262 artefacts. Interoperability and exchangeability of methods and artefacts are provided.
SCDL is designed by a Japanese Industry collaboration. Now it is time to make SCDL an international standard within the ASAM organization.
- SCDL is utilized as a standardized representation to support development and verification of functional / technical safety concepts and requirements
- SCDL and its graphical representation are intuitive and are used as a basis to commonly discuss and further develop ISO 26262 related aspects
- SCDL is also utilized to specify safety architecture in HW/SW integrated system.
- SCDL is a vendor-independent language to apply ISO 26262 requirements and design safety architectures
- SCDL supports tool-based development of safety concepts and software interfaces to link all ISO 26262 artefacts
- SCDL provides graphical representation for most ISO 26262 artefacts and activities, including analysis, review, test or assessment.
- SCDL diagrams support all ISO 26262 activities: analysis, review, test or assessment.
Who should participate?
ISO 26262 and functional safety experts from automotive OEMs, suppliers and tool vendors are invited. The participants are expected to join the subsequent SCDL project to make the world-wide standard.
