Software development for electronic control units~A methodology for the early phases
Published October 05, 2000 by Verlag Des Verein Deutscher Ingenieure GmbH in Germany
Nowadays the methodical development of applications for embedded and distributed control unit networks is a competitive advantage of an automotive company. High demands on quality, the increasing complexity of the systems and the rapidly growing number of interactions between subsystems as well as time and cost constraints lead to high requirements on methods and CASE tools.
In this paper basic technologies for a seamless and model- based requirements analysis are presented as they are elaborated in the compound project "FORSOFT II Automotive - Requirements Engineering for embedded Systems."
In this project, the Technical University of Munich, Robert Bosch GmbH, BMW AG, Adam Opel AG, ZF Friedrichhafen AG and the tool vendors ETAS GmbH & Co. KG, QSS GmbH and Telelogic GmbH are working tightly together on a development method, supported by tools for the early phases of systems development.
