Vehicle E/E Architecture: A New Paradigm for Collaborative Product Creation? A Case Study 2002-21-0006

Vehicle multiplexed E/E architectures are increasingly used for new vehicles. Their potential is usually described in wiring harness cost and weight reductions as well as in increased vehicle functionality through sensor sharing.
This paper studies two major parallel impacts that may be unleashed by the widespread use of these new E/E architectures:
  1. 1.
    We will illustrate, by use of a case study, that the new E/E architectures are going to induce new loops into the collaborative process of vehicle engineering. The mastering of these new loops will facilitate innovative and cost competitive product creation.
  2. 2.
    Consequently we will argue that the E/E architecture will increasingly gain more significance within the suppliers’ and OEMs’ R&D organizations to the point that they may be finally “reworked” to fit the new E/E architecture paradigm.
