Model-Based System Development - Is it the Solution to Control the Expanding System Complexity In The Vehicle? 2004-01-0300
Already today the car is a complex embedded system with a multitude of linked subsystems and components. In future these distributed systems have to be developed faster and with high quality via integrated, optimized design process. Scalable systems with an increased maintainability can be generated, if an agreement on a standardized technical architecture (hard- and software) is made at the beginning of the development. The challenges in the design of such distributed systems can be met through advanced automotive systems and software engineering in conjunction with suitable processes, methods and tools. Because the designers that must collaborate are distributed in different divisions or companies, it is essential that an overarching model based design methodology is used.
