Functional Safety And Requirements Engineering

Currently, dramatically increasing design costs are being reported for safety-critical applications. This is caused by additional necessary actions to implement and verify functional safety requirements. Such requirements are appearing with a clearly increasing tendency in the area of mobility (automotive, transport, aerospace) as well as in industrial automation and medical technology. In many... » read more

A Cost-Effective Model-Based Approach For Developing ISO 26262 Compliant Automotive Safety-Related Applications

Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers increasingly need to follow the objectives of ISO 26262 as it is now state-of-the art and as it is the case that an ever increasing number of active and passive safety systems are developed within cars. This has increased the need to define a safe system development process. This paper proposes a model-based approach including automatic and certified... » read more

Round-Trip Engineering Key To AUTOSAR-Based Development

This paper discusses how round-trip engineering can be used as an iterative development process and describes interoperability between tools from Mentor and MathWorks. Model-based design has become an important component in vehicle manufacturer and supplier development processes. Electronic control units are complex in terms of functionality, connectivity, and variants; therefore automotive ... » read more

Like Oil And Water

By Ann Steffora Mutschler For years, the promise and allure of a concurrent design methodology included talk of models, high-level synthesis, virtual prototyping and other system-level technologies all peacefully coexisting in a single design methodology. While it sounds like a good idea, the model-based design approach hasn’t mixed well with the virtual prototype approach. And at l... » read more
