Vehicle and Systems Architecture

Systems engineering is a key process in vehicle development. When designing a vehicle system, engineers must take into account not only the engineering aspects but also the business aspects. Moreover, the trend for standardization to AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture) or ISO26262 (Road Vehicle - Functional Safety) demands updates to be done to the vehicle systems.

The Vehicle & Systems Architecture solution covers end-to-end vehicle architecture and systems engineering processes. It is based on the RFLP (Requirement, Functional, Logical and Physical) and IVVQ (Integration, Validation, Verification and Qualification) infrastructures that enable complete traceability from requirements to the final product. Capabilities are provided for designing and simulating vehicle systems multi-physics behaviors as well as controller logic, which can be used to generate codes respecting standards such as AUTOSAR.

Dassault Systèmes' solution enables all vehicle modeling activities to be carried out on a single, unified product definition so that engineers from various disciplines can be brought together on a common platform. This brings many advantages such as increased product modularity, cross-discipline systems modeling, optimization and analysis of the entire vehicle system as well as systems-level configuration and change management capabilities.

Vehicle & Systems Architecture solution includes:

  • Requirement management
  • Functional analysis
  • Logical systems design
  • Multi-physics behavior modeling and simulations
  • Full traceability across Requirement - Function - Logical - Physical
  • AUTOSAR compliant software code generation
  • IVVQ (Integration Validation Verification & Qualification)
  • Systems configuration and change management
  • Mechanism simulation
