Embedded Safety & Compliance Throughout The Value Chain

We address the needs of Transport Industry specialists such as global Automotive and Aerospace OEMs, parts suppliers, consulting companies and start-ups, by assisting them in complying with Functional Safety regulations, especially in the rapidly evolving electro-mobility, connectivity and autonomous applications.

With a 30-year successful proven track record, our proprietary 5-Step System has been improving efficiency and stakeholder value by facilitating the implementation of important safety features into equipment, products and services while they are still on the drawing board.

Enhancing the Design and Production Ecosystem

Our expertise focuses on enhancing our clients’ understanding of applicable safety standards, how to apply them to their products, and how to efficiently integrate functional safety, and systems engineering into their development process.

We enrich their development ecosystem with a customer-driven, top-down process, thus guiding the design work from inception.

In some instances, the project has already started. In such situations, we reverse engineer compliant end-customer functional requirements into the overall design process. This allows us to reconcile often contradictory value chain requirements to save valuable time and money for our clients.

5-Step System: A 360° Approach to Problem Solving

The success of our proprietary 5-Step System is based on its 360° approach to product development, which seamlessly integrates Product Development, Systems Engineering, Functional Safety, and Quality Management Systems (QMS). We perform a holistic assessment of the existing organizational structure, procedures and product characteristics, people – their roles and responsibilities and associated competency matrices. The outcome of this assessment along with the organisational and product strategy is used to create a mapping between people, organization structure, QMS, and work products with an objective to modify and align the development process to comply with ISO 26262, DO 178-C, DO 254A, ARP 4761, IEC 61508 or relevant functional safety standards. This mapping is tailored to the unique circumstances of your organization and can be followed-up with assistance in hiring and mentoring the right team to stringently implement the products customers actually need. On-time and on budget.

Practical Solutions Yield Great Results

We succeed in helping organizations solve their toughest problems because we know that every company evolves organically, and as a result, often struggles with legacy issues that can substantially impact operations and workflows. We understand your organization and the specific processes you need to have in place, thus integrating systems engineering, functional safety, and product development processes and the need to match them to your Quality Management System.

This integration results in the Design & Development of safe and reliable transportation systems, allowing you to address market and safety requirements through top-down integrated design processes.

Hemraj Consulting Differentiators

Top-down systems engineering with built-in functional safety.

Meticulously designed components that meet or exceed vehicle attributes while delivering what the customers actually want.

Create a unique mapping between Organisation and Product Strategy through the Quality Management System. The mapping is used to create an action plan that guides a successful execution of the Organizational Strategy. This discipline can be applied to the company’s thorniest problems with consistent success.

We apply a customer-focused approach and implement a needs identification process and stringently document these requirements for the new or updated product/vehicle features.

Using the HEMRAJ Connect App, we are enabling safe, seamless and secure collaboration from concept to production and beyond … with our clients, partners and staff.

Significantly reduce lead times to get the software updates required to implement OEM features at various points in the product life cycle.

Identifying the appropriate team profiles in order to hire the right people with the right skills and experience.

We reinforce highly skilled areas by deploying the right experts who can train for specific and specialized needs.

Significant contributions


Our services are tailored to every customer’s unique needs in order to truly address the requirements of all the departments involved with the project. Rather than presenting a comprehensive service offering, we have listed our most commonly used services.

We offer end to end Functional Safety, Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF), Cybersecurity and Systems Engineering Consultancy Services from Concept Phase to Start of Production – be it for a hardware part, software component, system or the complete vehicle. Our products and services are offered under the name of SEEPASS® (acronym for Simple, Effective and Efficient Processes for Assuring Safety and Security) and utilize our proprietary state of the art analysis and risk assessment techniques STPA+®.

The service that is best suited for our customer is discussed either in a brief strategy session call, which can be scheduled here or during a face-to-face discussion during which we can evaluate the challenges, problems, opportunities and solutions we can provide.

I engage with the C-Suite executive team in formulating the strategy and subsequently mentor and coach the working group tasked with executing the agreed implementation plan to ensure expected results are accomplished.
