Today the added value in products is shaped not so much by hardware or even mechanical parameters, but mainly software. Software allows the use of diversified sources and wide choice of variants with release cycles simultaneously speeding up. Against the resistance of established industry mentality, even the development of safety critical software is not immune against this approach.

However, the current set of standards regarding functional safety currently puts a blind eye to most of the deployed methods, usage and contribution of/to open source software, agile development, DevOps, etc.

These standards ignore the flexibility and reusability already employed at software development.

This talk aims to start an open discussion what really should be considered relevant in modern software development, how state of the art proofs of safety might look like and which current staples of conformity might even impair the reliability, safety and security of nowadays software products.
