Using Model and Code Reviews in Model-based Development of ECU Software 2006-01-1240
In the automotive industry, the model-based approach is increasingly establishing itself as a standard paradigm for developing control unit software. Just as code reviews are widespread in classical software development as a quality assurance measure, models also have to undergo a stringent review procedure – particularly if they serve as a starting point for automatic implementation by code generators. In addition to these model reviews, the generated production code is reviewed later in the development process by performing auto code reviews. This article will present procedures for and give an account of experiences with model and code reviews which have been adapted to the model-based development process.
