Codesign in Automotive Electronics 98C048

The design of automotive electronics is a highly cooperative, distributed process between car manufactures and suppliers. Due to significant increase of quality, cost, and time to market demands, several initiatives have been founded over the last years to address the increasing demand for standardization both for automotive electronics and vehicle based software. The German MSR consortium has concentrated on design tools and information exchange between manufacturers and suppliers, whereas the OSEK/VDX consortium has concentrated on the establishment of basic software components for open system architectures. To address future demands, these activities have to be consolidated and complemented by initiatives addressing the systematic improvement of the concurrent design processes as well as the appropriate qualification of engineering personnel. This paper presents the vision of codesign in automotive electronics, which is based on the integration of methods and tools, standardized software and interfaces, concurrent processes and team skills.
