Cybersecurity is of a growing concern across industries. It is today not anymore nice to have, because systems are interconnected, and in one way or the other open for external penetration. Even worse security directly impacts functionality, user experience and safety, and thus has become subject to product liability. For instance, functional safety is not feasible without a concise approach to cover cyber security. OEMs and suppliers must ensure an effective protection against manipulations of automotive E/E systems. Key points in the development of protected E/E systems are the proper identification of security requirements, the systematic realization of security functions, and a security validation to demonstrate that security requirements have been met. Based on our experiences inside Vector and with client projects around the world, we will show typical challenges and highlight suitable security guidance. We show with concrete examples how these practices improve developing secure systems and how these activities can be performed efficiently. Contact us to benefit from our rich security portfolio ranging from base software to tools to services.

Follow-the-sun has evolved to follow-the-talent. Managing a product thus has a true global perspective. Products increasingly are developed in virtual teams using agile set-up and gig economy practices. The success of a product or service depends on its product management. Recently software product management has moved closer to software development in its understanding that market decisions have technical impact, and vice versa. This research provides results from an empirical field study with twenty companies on software product management in its global context. The empirical study provides concrete practices to fertilize and evolve software product management in global teams and thus the success of products in terms of predictability, quality and efficiency. We show that with institutionalization of a consistent and empowered product management role, global product development benefits in terms of schedule, quality and duration.

To be able to evaluate the functionality of a single algorithm or an entire system, the relevant properties must be measured and recorded. This is performed through the use of measurement and calibration systems such as CANape in laboratories, on test benches or during vehicle testing. Depending on the combination and the number of sources, there are often several hundred thousand signals to acquire. The varying character of the interfaces and the temporal behavior of the sources pose special challenges on a measurement tool for synchronous recording.
This document provides you with an overview of how you can measure really everything with CANape and how other products can be integrated to form a complete solution.

Our Ford case study shows how to practically implement agile systems engineering – on a global scope. Vector Consulting has supported Ford over several years to establish such agile framework. Agile Systems Engineering supports the continuous and flexible development of requirements up to validation. It creates understanding of critical dependencies and provides methodological support to address growing complexity. Due to the increased abstraction level at the beginning of the requirements development and analysis, problem descriptions are much clearer, simpler and less redundant. This not only improves the development speed, but also ensures clearly understood domain concepts within the project. Our case study with Ford highlights industry experiences and thus provides orientation in the linking of agile development and system engineering. Our industry projects show efficiency gains of 20-30%, primarily due to shorter cycle times.

Increasing functionality, multicore and black box integration of OEM software or park brake control supplied by third parties increased complexity of braking system development dramatically. Agile methods were introduced to handle increased complexity. With this first application of agile methods at ZF TRW we could prove feasibility and strong benefits of agile methods in safety critical system development (ASIL D), very large projects (> 150 engineers), and projects with very strong dependencies between HW (“ECU or HCU”) and SW. Improvements were observed in much faster flow of information, better alignment of decisions, and significant improvement in velocity and product quality.

Most innovative products are developed in distributed settings. The targets are clear: More flexibility, innovation and efficiency. Global engineering and product development has become a key competence for any engineering organisation. However, the vast majority of global activities do not deliver to targets, and half of them are aborted due to reasons such as insufficient collaboration, high overheads, or insufficient worksplit and competences. This keynote of renowned industry expert Christof Ebert, managing director at Vector Consulting Services, summarizes concrete experiences and guidance from industry. He provides a framework of 3x3 best practices which are necessary to achieve flexibility, innovation and efficiency with distributed projects and products. Prof. Ebert offers many practical hints and concrete explanations to make distributed teams and projects a success.

Security is today a key challenge for all IT and embedded systems. Security directly impacts reliability, availability and functional safety. Based on the specific challenges of automotive security, OEMs and suppliers have to realize an effective protection against manipulations of automotive E/E systems. Key points in the development of protected E/E systems are the proper identification of security requirements, the systematic realization of security functions, and a security validation to demonstrate that security requirements have been met. Based on our experiences in several client projects, we show which security engineering activities are required to create secure systems and how these activities can be performed efficiently in the automotive domain. Read our thought-provoking presentation from the recent Vector Congress.

Product lines are an extremely important lever to control complexity and to achieve quality throughout. New applications are usually faster to market, if they have already been developed for a different market. Development, integration and production cost, and thus the overall product cost decrease. Due to the reuse and the lower proportion to integrate components, companies such as Robert Bosch, Siemens and Volkswagen have achieved efficiency gains of 10-30 %. For instance, we were able to reduce the cost of rework over the entire product life cycle by 20-50% with reuse-oriented requirements engineering. Our presentation shows industry experience with Stihl and offers guidance in the implementation of product line concepts with a focus on requirements engineering. We show how requirements are formalized so that dependencies and reuse concepts can be implemented early and consistently. Thus, the requirements are precisely formulated and are used to ensure consistency and completion. They can still be understood and validated by stakeholders of diverse backgrounds. Concrete results from the reuse concepts, the underlying chnage management and PREEvision tool support at Stihl are presented. We highlight experiences in setting up a product line concept in an existing product scope.

Measurement, benchmarking and data analytics and are essential for both business and engineering. The current digital transformation increases the amount of data that becomes available. The value of a company is increasingly defined by its data. Value creation can only be exploited fully if these are used efficiently along the entire value chain. This tutorial will provide an overview on three topics: Measurement, Benchmarking, Data Analytics. All three topics are quantitative in nature and thus demand some understanding of underlying methods and techniques. Different perspectives demand appropriate depth. Insufficient measurement makes projects fail because business objectives will not be reached and effort will be wasted. Legal obligation such as product liability and many contractual requirements worldwide demand quantitative risk management and traceable measurements. Vector will provide guidance alomng software an dIT measurement and benchmarking.

Best Paper Award International Cost Estimation and Analysis Association (ICEAA) Conference 2016
Estimation matters. Many projects and smart business ideas fail for lack of delivering on time and budget. A common need in every field is thus to forecast and estimate. Estimation is an engineering discipline based on experience, data, transparent methods and common-sense. COSMIC, the Common Software Measurement International Consortium was created by an international group to develop a standard, ‘open’ measurement system and project estimation methods applicable to all types of software used in business and the real-time world. Estimation and measurement methods are rarely used properly in industry and the public sector, contributing to the high level of project failures and over-runs To improve both your project performance and productivity, we recommend starting right away with introducing or improving the estimation process with a closed loop of estimation, planning, measuring, and periodically improving your estimates. Read this award-winning paper and learn about best measurement and estimation practices.

Functional safety and cyber security must be systematically developed and implemented in parallel. Currently this is often done in piecemeal, as industry standards and methods for safety and security are quite isolated from each other. This previously established separation of the two "disciplines" each with its own standards and procedures is not sustainable because of dependencies and mutual influences are overlooked. In addition, a separate procedure is inefficient because many functions have to be touched several times. Essential is an integrated approach for the development and verification of requirements in order to make these two quality requirements manageable. We show in this presentation the systematic and continuous development and implementation of safety and security requirements. Hella corporation illustrates the method and advantages of such combined safety and security approach using the example of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System). The article thus gives a good overview of the methodology and the art of integrated engineering for Safety and Cyber Security. At the same show our industry experience, as the methodology is implemented effectively. Many lessons learned from practical help to transfer in their own environment of the participants.

„A fool with a tool remains a fool.“ Das wissen wir alle und trotzdem führen viele Unternehmen ein Requirements-Werkzeug ein in der Annahme, dass sich allein damit eine Verbesserung ergibt. Weit gefehlt! In der Regel sind die Mitarbeiter aufgrund der Komplexität des neuen Werkzeugs, aber auch des wahrgenommenem Formalismus frustriert. Klar ist, dass wirksames und effizientes Requirements Engineering (RE) ein passendes Werkzeug braucht. Automativierbare manuelle Tätigkeiten sind ineffizient und werden abgelehnt – egal wie gut die Intentionen dahinter waren. Doch vor dem Werkzeug steht eine umfassende Vorbereitung der Abläufe und Funktionen, damit das Werkzeug in die Umgebung passt. In diesem Beitrag zeige ich Ihnen, wie Sie das für Ihre Umgebung passende Werkzeug auswählen. Wesentliche Werkzeuge werden charakterisiert und bewertet. Sie erkennen, dass Prozesse und Werkzeuge systematisch eingeführt werden müssen. Das erfordert professionelles Veränderungsmanagement. Der Beitrag gibt zudem eine praxisnahe Übersicht zu aktuellen RE-Werkzeugen. Konkrete Praxistipps zur Tool-Auswahl und -Einführung runden ihn ab.

The benefits of lean requirements engineering can be related to several factors. Some such as better delivery accuracy or less rework create directly tangible benefits. Others, such as customer satisfaction, are more opportunistic and become tangible in the form of lasting good customer relationships with further projects. Overall, our experience has shown that a doubling of the effort for Requirements Engineering towards10 per cent of project budget in the areas of methodology, processes, training and tool support will deliver project benefits of more than 20 percent. That's a return on investment of more than 4, even by only considering the directly measurable benefits. Enough reason that you evolve your own requirements engineering towards 'Lean'.

Requirements Engineering in safety-critical systems must systematically develop and evaluate requirements for functional safety and cyber security in parallel. Currently this is done in a piecemeal, because the industry standards for safety and security are still placed highly isolated from each other. This previously established separation of the two "disciplines" each with its own standards and procedures is not sustainable because of dependencies and mutual influences are overlooked. In addition, a separate procedure is inefficient because many functions have to be touched several times. An integrated approach for the development and verification of requirements is essential in order to make these two quality requirements manageable. Our presentation shows with practical industry experience of Vector and Hella how the dependencies and interactions between safety and security requirements in Requirements Engineering methodically and systematically be considered. First, we describe a practical approach to the safety requirements. On this basis we integrate development for security requirements. The advantages of an integrated safety and security requirements engineering methodology are illustrated tool based on a specific example.

Rising cost pressure is forcing manufacturers and their suppliers to jointly and consistently master product development. Our industry case study shows how a leading automotive OEM over time has achieved effective interaction of engineering processes, tools and people on the basis of product and application life-cycle management (PLM / ALM). Starting from establishing the relevant engineering processes, we show how they can be effectively automated for best possible usage across the enterprise and even for suppliers. We practically describe how such a profound change process is successfully managed together with impacted engineers and how the concepts can be transferred to other companies. Concrete results for efficiency improvement, shorter lead time and better quality in product development combined with better global engineering underline the business value. Read this white paper with our global project experiences with BMW, Bosch, Siemens, Thales and Volkswagen.

Most innovative products are developed in distributed settings. The targets are clear: More flexibility, innovation and efficiency. Global engineering and product development has become a key competence for any engineering organisation. However, the vast majority of global activities do not deliver to targets, and half of them are aborted due to reasons such as insufficient collaboration, high overheads, or insufficient worksplit and competences. This keynote of renowned industry expert Christof Ebert, managing director at Vector Consulting Services, summarizes concrete experiences and guidance from industry. He provides a framework of 3x3 best practices which are necessary to achieve flexibility, innovation and efficiency with distributed projects and products. Prof. Ebert offers many practical hints and concrete explanations to make distributed teams and projects a success.

Requirements engineering is the systematic approach to providing direction before and during software development. It provides the means to deliver the right products or solutions at the right time for the right markets. Requirements Engineering (RE) bridges the entire life cycle and thus determines success or failure of a product or solution. This mini tutorial of Dr. Christof Ebert of Vector Consulting Services shows how to best use RE and master its challenges. It practically describes how to develop and write good requirements and how to manage them during the project. The presentation underlines the basic concepts and practices of RE with broad industrial experiences.

Requirements Engineering is key success factor for developing critical systems. Traditional development processes, that achieve innovation and quality through a cumbersome process, are no longer appropriate. Innovation in increasingly complex systems under cost pressures and global competition requires continuous focus on value and cost. It starts with the requirements that are not "collected", but must be developed together with relevant stakeholders. Requirements engineering must therefore be enriched today with methods from Lean Management. Lean Requirements Engineering begins with a systematic elaboration of the actual needs and value. For example, misunderstood quality requirements create problems in usability and performance. Without a tight coupling and collaboration of product management and development the resuilting products do not match the market needs. Requirement changes are detected too late and lead to unnecessary rework and non-conformance cost. Since many processes due to the high combinatorial complexity and a rather low standardization and its ad-hoc nature are difficult to model, Requirements Engineering must massively support the Sales Function. We present experiences and benefits of Lean Requirements Engineering with projects at Siemens AG. We demonstrate with practical examples and industry experiences, how Lean Requirements engineering is implemented. Thus, the cost of rework can be reduced by approximately 30%. The experiences provided in this presentation can be transferred to other projects and environments.

Hardly any industry is growing as fast and is so innovative as automotive technology. Electronics are the most relevant innovation driver and growth factor in automotive. User experience and thus the market value of any vehicle are driven mainly by electronic functions. Intelligent assistance systems, electric power train and the networking of vehicle and environment show the bandwidth. Simultaneously, the high ecological and economic expectations of markets and customers are not feasible without electronics. Just think of emission regulations which are impossble to achieve with classic combustion. Challenges here are in coping with the fast growing complexity while meeting the strict standards for durability and efficiency of systems and components. This presentation summarizes the key trends in the automotive industry. We will provide hands-on examples of current highlights including e-Car, car2x and functional safety and information security.

Finally installed, and then? With current cost pressure PLM and new tools are introduced to automate engineering workflows. However, the expected benefits are often not visible. Instead, employees are frustrated and continue working with their current work practices. The new interfaces create additional frictions and delays. Our consulting projects show that the root cause is often the same: There are many levers for tool support and improved efficiency, but implementation with sustainable results requires profound change management – which is rarely taken into account. To introduce PLM from concept to implementation has three key incredients. Learn from our experiences how to successfully introduce tools.

Increasingly complex supplier-relationships dominate product development, independent of industries and products. Mostly the primary source of risks and later problems is insufficient coherence with requirements engineering methodology and collaboration between different business partners during the project. Our article at the IEEE International Conference on Requirements Engineering (RE09) based on experiences from various industries and projects provides insight into how to effectively collaborate in requirements engineering. Methods and tools are one side of the medal, but true collaboration also means having a platform to effectively and efficiently exchange requirements, specifications and their entire change management across impacted stakeholders. The Requirements Interchange Format (RIF) has quickly moved forward over the past two years first in automotive and currently starting in domains such as medical and aerospace. This presentation describes typical RE collaboration scenarios and what we recommend in order to mitigate risks and thus effectively manage complex supplier relationships. We will not “sell” any tool but rather indicate how RIF is applied in order to share, communicate and collaborate across different tools.

To survive in a fast changing environment, we need to continuously improve productivity, reduce rework, and optimize product strategies. Lean development and lean management offer the right ingredients: Eliminating waste, empowering teams, delivering as fast as possible, seeing the whole. But there is a dark side, as recent industry experiences show. Too lean is mean. Lean often fails due to lack of vision, organizational misalignment and insufficient execution. It is thus crucial for companies to successfully manage change towards lean development. Dr. Christof Ebert, managing director at Vector Consulting Services shares his broad experiences in introducing lean development.

Requirements are the initial and basic building blocks combining processes in a product’s life-cycle. We take the position that only by taking an RE perspective in four key product life-cycle management activities, the underlying projects will be successful. The article describes a field study with data from 246 industry projects in the domains of software platforms, embedded systems and software applications. We found that these four life-cycle techniques must be used simultaneously to achieve tangible performance improvement measured by schedule adherence. Each technique is elaborated by concrete, practical experiences.

It is difficult to imagine our world without software. Since software is so ubiquitous, we need to stay in control. We have to make sure that the systems and their software run as we intend – or better. Only if software has the right quality, we will stay in control and not suddenly realize that things are going awfully wrong. Software quality management is the discipline that ensures that the software we are using and depending upon is of right quality. With solid understanding and discipline in software quality management, we can be sure that our products will deliver according to expectations, both in terms of customer and market commitments as well as business performance. This article provides a brief overview on concepts and application of software quality management. It is driven by practical experiences from many companies and is illustrated with best practices so that readers can transfer these concepts to their own environments.

Functions such as adaptive cruise control, crash protection systems, active body control and ESP are increasing in complexity and taking an ever more active role in controlling the car. These functions are realized by systems of sensors, actuators and interconnected electronic control units. The systems must be designed to function under a variety of operating conditions and must adhere to a number of mechanical, hardware and software constraints. In order to be able to manage the emerging product liability risks associated with such systems as well as ensuring the high level of quality required of automotive systems, significant improvements to engineering processes are necessary. In this article, we describe our experiences in adapting companies’ development processes to conform to safety standards and to cope with the challenges mentioned above. We detail key success factors in overcoming these challenges and provide practical examples from working with global OEMs and tier-one suppliers on implementing safety standards in E/E development.

Rising cost pressure is forcing manufacturers and their suppliers to jointly and consistently master product development. Our case study shows how Volvo over time is achieving effective interaction of engineering processes, tools and people on the basis of product and application life-cycle management (PLM / ALM). Starting from establishing the relevant engineering processes, we show how they can be effectively automated for best possible usage across the enterprise and even for suppliers. We practically describe how such a profound change process is successfully managed together with impacted engineers and how the concepts can be transferred to other companies. Concrete results for efficiency improvement, shorter lead time and better quality in product development combined with better global engineering underline the business value – specifically in times where cost are to be cut and performance must substantially grow.
