Engineers at DaimlerChrysler AG’s Research and Technology Centre in Ulm,
Germany have described their experiences using a new approach to solving
complex automotive software product configuration problems.

In a conference paper, the authors characterize embedded automotive
software in terms of its high-degree of variability – variability arising
from the characteristics of different vehicle hardware, different target
markets and different legal regimes.

The authors’ novel solution to the problem is to integrate the widely used
MATLAB / Simulink tool with pure::variants, an Eclipse plug-in designed
specifically to solve complex configuration problems.

In the paper, two alternative integration schemes are evaluated. In the
first approach, pure::variants is used to generate an XML description of
an individual product variant which is then imported into Simulink. In the
second approach, pure::variants is used to generate MATLAB scripts
describing the product variant and these are then imported into Simulink.
This second scheme requires more information about the software
architecture to be modelled in pure::variants but the authors conclude
that this is beneficial because of greater transparency in the
configuration process.

The paper was presented as part of the 3rd Workshop on Automotive Software
Engineering, which took place at the Informatik 2005 conference held in
Bonn, Germany 19th – 22nd September.

the pure::variants toolset.

Mark,

This looks interesting. Do you have a link to the Daimler presentation?

Thanks

I don't think the presentation will be made available on line
unfortunately.

The workshop website is at
http://www-ti.informatik.uni-tuebingen.de/~kropf/aswe/#Ancho r-Links-33869

We're working on a magazine article describing the work in more detail and
will be happy to post a reference to that once it's available.

Regards,
Mark
