Webinar: The practicalities of MISRA compliance

On March 19 our supplier LDRA offers a webinar which will discuss several key points raised by the MISRA compliance document. 

There are many static analysis tools available to assess code compliance with MISRA guidelines. But the identification and rectification of violations flagged by a tool represents only one part of the compliance process. Step back from the analysis of violations and the need to address bigger questions about the process as a whole becomes obvious.

Ways to meet the relentless pressure to release products faster

Designers often use one set of tools (such as Adobe Photoshop) to craft the look and feel of a UI and another set for prototyping (like Adobe Experience Design). Developers then use a third toolset (often C/C++) to implement the final product. All of these changes in tools, process, and workflow suck up time and introduce errors. Thankfully, there are tools on the market that can help create a streamlined design development process.

Ways to meet the relentless pressure to market faster

If you’re building a one-off product, code reuse doesn’t matter. That being said, you almost never use good code only once. Initial releases invariably get updated with new features and bug fixes, one product can lead to a family of products, and reliable code from older projects is often implemented into new incarnations. So if you’re writing code with a plan to throw it away, you’re doing it wrong.

Critical consumer expectations; value for money

If the best products provide an excellent user experience, the best-selling products also provide excellent value for the money. With so many forces attempting to get a share of the consumer wallet, you need to build products that are “worth it”, and that usually means a bill of materials that’s as low as you can manage.

Critical consumer expectations that open wallets

Create products with both functionality and design in mind.
In the good old days when function trumped form, consumers had to live with difficult-to-use products like the much-maligned VHS recorder. Today, consumer preference for a product is increasingly determined by the quality of the user experience.

Effective software development for safety-related markets

Many products for such markets as household appliances, automotive, industrial and healthcare have regulatory requirements to be certified against functional safety (FuSa) standards. For example, IEC 61508 for electrical systems, ISO 26262 for the automotive industry, IEC62304 for medical systems, and EN 50128 for railway applications.

Within the standards, there are multiple safety integrity levels (SIL) that specify formal methods to be used during development for verifying that the application code, software components and toolchains are safe for the intended use.
