Production Control Plan for Cybersecurity in Vehicle Manufacturing
During this video course, you will learn about a major product required by ISO/SAE 21434 for modern vehicle production: the production control plan. Throughout this video course you will gain an understanding of the production phase, the role of the production control plan and what its required contents are to maintain cybersecurity during production.
Ensuring cybersecurity during production with the Production Control Plan
Demands across the automotive industry to ensure cybersecurity throughout the entire product lifecycle including development and post-development stages are unavoidably increasing, and so are new challenges. Consequently, cybersecurity is changing how modern vehicles should be manufactured. In fact, the ISO/SAE 21434:2021 dedicates the entire Clause 12 to the production stage and requires a Production Control Plan as work product. This 15 minute video course will provide you with the necessary context and guidance for the creation of this major work product.
First, you will get familiar with the concepts of production phase and goods in the context of the automotive industry and in general. Moreover, we will briefly highlight where production takes place in the vehicle product lifecycle and. Here, we will also explain what the Release for Post Development is as an important pre-requirement to start production.
Next, you will get an overview of the different roles OEMs and suppliers play in the production process and gain an understanding of the distributed process (see also distributed development) for vehicle manufacturing.
Shortly after, we will also highlight what traditional factors makes a vehicle stand out from the competition and introduce cybersecurity as a new quality dimension. Thereby, explaining the importance of the production control plan as required by ISO/SAE 21434:2021.
After building the necessary context, we will go into explaining what the production control plan entails in detail. We will begin by explaining what the Release for Post Development Report and Cybersecurity Requirements for Post-Development are and why they are necessary for the creation and purpose of the Production Control Plan. Then, you will get a complete overview of what the required contents for the Production Control Plan are and some practical examples.
To conclude, we will go over the various costly consequences and adverse scenarios that may arise if the Production Control Plan is neglected and reinforce how the Production Control Plan can proactively prevent them.
Who the „Production Control Plan“ video course is made for
Professionals involved in vehicle production
Preventing vulnerabilities and risks during post-development phases, including production, is a shared responsibility to ensure cybersecurity throughout the product lifecycle. In this video course, you will get an idea of how having a Production Control Plan in place may prevent this and supports compliance with ISO/SAE 21434.
Professionals responsible for quality and testing
In this video course, you will get to know why cybersecurity is a new quality dimension and how it can be ensured also during production with a Production Control Plan. This work product is a major ISO/SAE 21434 requirement that, as shown throughout the lesson, should not be neglected.
Production Control Plan – Video Course content
In order to build up the necessary context, we will first present the main learning objectives of this video course and highlight the importance of the Production Control Plan.
II. The process of making goods
In this short section, you will get familiar with basic concepts used throughout the video course and learn what the production phase is.
III. Product lifecycle: Production phase
Here, you will get a bigger picture of the product lifecycle and gain an understanding of the production phase from OEM and supplier perspective. The Release for Post Development Report will also be introduced here as a necessary pre-requirement for the start of production.
Get to know what pre-requirements and requirements are for the creation of the Production Control Plan, its purpose, and what exact contents are expected by ISO/SAE 21434.
V. Consequences of neglecting the Production Control Plan
As the final lesson of this learning unit, we will present a few of the various adverse scenarios that may come up in the absence of the Production Control Plan.
VI. Production Control Plan – Conclusion
Finally, we will go over the main takeaways on the production process and Production Control Plan provided in this video course.
