Model-Based Software Technology Providing Safer Automotive Development and High Quality 2004-01-0271

Using modeling tools to simulate the behavior of a system before developing the corresponding product(s), is now becoming a common approach for the automotive industry, but many challenges remain. In particular, one has to make sure that:
  • the input requirements are the actual need of the customer.
  • the functional model meets the actual requirements, so that it can become the functional reference
  • the same test scenarios are applied both on the model and on the final product, allowing a clear comparison between both results and providing an important improvement in the validation process and in the supplier-customer relationship.
This paper explains the innovative approach that has been developed to meet the challenges described above. The corresponding VALEO model-based development process is based on Statemate, Rhapsody in Micro C and in-house tools.
