Who We Are

About us

FSS was founded with the goal of passing on our comprehensive knowledge of functional safety in the form of training and mentoring packages. You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel. Thanks to our work in the automotive, locomotive, medical, and automation fields, we offer the best solutions and approaches for technical, organizational and process applications from every industry.

We are a team of qualified computer scientists with extensive professional experience and offer our services in German, English and Spanish. With a high degree of cultural sensitivity, we take time for our clients with the same level of empathy that we have for our family and friends. Our experience living and working abroad on continents like North America, South America and Europe has positioned us to train your teams around the world. We will teach you everything about functional safety from preparing the necessary documentation to negotiating the scope of the project (development interface agreement – DIA) between OEM and tier 1.

Our goal is to equip you with enough knowledge about the ISO 26262 requirements that you will no longer need us after training has been completed. The short training sessions and long-term mentoring packages we offer will help you develop the expertise needed to conduct internal audits and assessments of functional safety yourself.

Please contact us for a program tailored to your needs or to receive a schedule of upcoming ISO 26262 training blocks, which take place regularly in Hamburg.

Our philosophy

We foster your employees’ professional skills and boost your reputation by equipping you with the tools you need to incorporate functional safety in your product development and production as a standard. Thanks to our own development work, we see ourselves as translators between the requirements of the standards and solutions in day-to-day business. Our training is based on actual projects and each example comes from real-life situations. We offer best practices at many levels and continue to stand by your side after the training for quick questions. We would be happy to share our knowledge with you via email or Skype.

About us

We operate internationally

We have years of international project experience in the fields of functional safety consultation and training. Our training sessions are offered in English and Spanish.

Are you developing a component according to ISO 26262 with international suppliers, or is your company a tier 1 company?

With our training offer, you will learn about the safety verification you will need for your clients, German OEMs or as an automotive supplier doing business in the USA, as well as the necessary assessments and audits.

We will work with you to determine the minimum documentation requirements for safety verification; how to prepare this documentation quickly; which documents, reviews and tests are required; and how tests in development are to be properly conducted. We will show you how to work effectively and prepare verification from your daily work.
