GOD drives automotive into a digital future

With the advance of electromobility, digitalisation is also increasingly finding its way into the car. GOD develops flexible and smart solutions for a leading global automotive manufacturer.
Configuration management for vehicle development and production: smart, central and digital

Until now, control units in vehicles were self-contained components - each with a single function and task. With the new generation of vehicles, control is bundled: A new generation of centralised ECUs is now responsible for all functions in the vehicle. Thus, the complete configuration management for the vehicle electronics had to be reinitialised.

"The car is developing more and more into a fully functional computer and this demanded completely new approaches to solutions from development and production, which they successfully tackled with our help. The challenge was not only to be able to configure a completely new IT system landscape with significantly more complex internal dependencies, but also to ensure that the configurations remained maintainable. In addition, it had to be ensured that there were no unwanted cross-effects, even if components change when new versions are installed,"

explains Igor Krahne, GOD Managing Director and Head of Software Design/Development.

Everything at a glance: Function-oriented view visible to everyone

In detail, the whole thing looks like this: The new configuration management enables those responsible for vehicle projects to create so-called "baselines" - planning statuses of all control units for a vehicle product. These planning statuses (actual statuses / planned statuses) are digitally viewed and evaluated by the project managers in technical development. Furthermore, third-party systems also have an insight into the digital statuses.

With the new configuration management, a function-oriented view of the vehicle product is possible. This is important with regard to centralised control, because it allows functions of the vehicle such as flashing lights, measuring the outside temperature, braking, etc. to be assigned to the configuration elements - the (virtual) control units and the software components - in the vehicle.

The advantages:

  • Processes are standardised and audit-proof
  • Sustainable cost optimisation through standardisation
  • Improved user-friendliness through the establishment of modern user interfaces and user experience

Digitalisation in the car - we use this know-how to start your future!
