Modern vehicles are complex systems driven by ever-evolving software features and highly networked architectures. Shorter development cycles and rising cost pressure require new approaches to providing secure and affordable mobility solutions. A suitable tool to deal with these challenges is interdisciplinary systems engineering. Development artifacts are formalized using SysML models. This results in significant benefits for documentation, test case design and architecture definition. The methodology is applied and industrialized as part of a development project for the next e-vehicle generation at BMW.


Automotive system development must, on one hand, make the complexity of state-of-the-art automobiles manageable and, on the other hand, ensure that the product can be brought to the customer safely and in a timely manner under ever-tougher market conditions. New technical trends, such as Connectivity and Highly Automated Driving (HAD), require a shorter time to market...
