Benchmarking automotive MBSE solutions for enhanced

systems development, reducing time and costs

With the growing complexity of automotive systems and the shortening of development times, a new development approach is needed. Model Based Systems Engineering provides an attractive solution. In this conference we shall focus on the newest processes, tools and methods for Model Based Development in automotive applications, as seen from the perspectives of the main OEMs, their direct suppliers, as well as software tool providers and research institutes.

The conference will provide you with the platform to:

  • Hear case studies of successful model based development projects from main OEMs and their direct suppliers
  • Discover the approaches and tools, that allow efficient safety standard-compliant applications of MBSE (ISO 26262, AUTOSAR)
  • Learn how to maximise the performance against goals in your MBSE practices

Sneak preview on 2018 presentations:

"Opel experience in developing system-safety tools for ADAS feature development”

ADAS feature development should be supported by efficient means for hierarchical modeling and for integration on architecture level. We will focus on the case-study of a tool, that allows for:

  • Smooth integration of components from suppliers
  • Efficient interface between OEM and suppliers, passing requirements, design, safety and variation information, facilitating a product-line approach
  • Validation approaches and test coverage strategies, aligned to Automotive Safety Integrity levels.

"Discussing language applicability and cross-platform integration in MBSE: benchmarking best practices"

SySML and Simulink are not well-tailored to be used in MBSE automotive applications. Different companies solve tools and languages problems differently. Several years ago Mathlab and Simulink were extensively used among software architects, but with the development of car-systems and expansion of MBSE practices, they don’t seem to be useful anymore. Therefore companies develop tools and software applications, that allow to keep up to modern development requirements in stock. This however produces 2 major issues:

  • The development process is hardly standardizable;
  • You need to link design and coding across platforms: Rapsody, Doors, Visio, etc.

"Measuring efficiency of MBSE in automotive industry"
This talk presents an MBSE maturity model that allows companies, departments, or even teams to assess how mature their MBSE practices are, compare them with the goals they would like to perceive with MBSE, and then derive a stepwise roadmap to improve their MBSE practices.
The key messages of this talk are:
  • MBSE can and should not be introduced as a “big bang”;
  • The presented maturity model provides an MBSE strategy that builds upon the specific situation; of a company and is aligned with its goals;
  • The model has already been applied and validated in a number of companies.
