Software Platform Embedded Systems Dissemination and Transfer (2016 - 2018)
In SPEDiT, Validas AG is developing a concept for the gradual introduction of model-based approaches in companies. The following modeling areas are considered: requirements, functional hierarchies, architecture, testing, process and safety.
The aim is to support the dissemination of techniques and the integrated, overall methodological approach to the development of embedded systems and to lay the foundation for standardized methods, techniques and processes in this field. The widespread industrial application of SPES results is further enhanced by providing integrated tool chains that are suitable for professional use in complex development organizations.
For the work in SPEDiT, Validas AG is financially supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the project number (Förderkennzeichen) 01IS15058H.
(2016 - 2017)
In TOPWATER, Validas develops a framework for safety proof with the following components:
- Simulatable process model
- Compliance report generator
- Process documentation generator
- Checklists generator
The concept is illustrated by the example of the tool qualification processes of Validas and certified by TÜV.
The complexity of automotive software systems in software development is nowadays countered by tool-based and model-driven development. Software development requires domain-specific processes, methods, and tools, which are also significantly influenced by standards and norms (for example, ISO 26262, ISO 9001: 2000, ISO / IEC 15504-5).
In the research project TOPWATER (development of ontology-based software for integrated process and tool chain planning and validation for automotive software development), which is being financially supported by the ZIM (central innovation program for small and medium-sized enterprises), a modeling software is being developed. This software allows to model process chains, tool chains and relevant safety standards in one step and also integrate several existing tool chains and process chains.
