ASAM 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. It allows for interoperability and exchangeability of methods and artefacts.

Use cases

  • ASAM SCDL is utilized as a standardized representation to support development and verification of functional / technical safety concepts and requirements.
  • ASAM SCDL and its graphical representation are intuitive and are used as a basis to commonly discuss and further develop ISO 26262 related aspects.
  • ASAM SCDL is also utilized to specify safety architecture in HW/SW integrated system.

Benefits

  • ASAM SCDL is a vendor-independent language to apply ISO 26262 requirements and design safety architectures.
  • ASAM SCDL supports tool-based development of safety concepts and software interfaces to link all ISO 26262 artefacts.
  • ASAM 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 and assessment.
