Managing Faults: OneSpin’s Dave Kelf talks ISO 26262
August 22, 2017  by Peggy Aycinena

 


In a recent conversation with OneSpin’s Dave Kelf
, he laughed when I asked him to characterize the complexities of meeting functional safety standards when developing automotive electronics. “It’s a whole rat’s nest of certification,” he said, “and as an industry we’re not there yet.

“However, at OneSpin we have a good handle now on what you need to do to make these cars safe. We’ve been working for quite a while with Bosch, Infineon, and other companies that really have a good idea of what needs to happen with the chips in cars to make them safe.

“In fact, a large part of the regulations come from these guys because they’re the experts, along with some level of government oversight, in trying to make sense of it all.”

…Note… While I know it may seem that by writing this, I am asking for sympathy for the work I do, I am not…well maybe a little. What I am simply doing is to try and give an alternative perspective, a broader understanding of what it takes to fill just one Job Opening. I am talking more to the companies that engage us as it is essential for me to explain the reality of the real work that we do daily. It is that understanding that can make the entire process so much more productive for all of us and allow us to actually achieve our goals of a hire and a placement. I am doing this for some 20 years, and I am expressing these thoughts after talking to numerous other recruiters that have similar frustrations and experiences.  I honestly believe that most companies lack a thorough understanding of the extraordinary time it takes to find a few decent candidates, worthy of submission.
