A modern Product Development process must integrate multiple disciplines from start to end. Software, Electrical, Mechanical Design, and Manufacturing can no longer work in silos. New disciplines like Systems Engineering and Requirements Engineering will play stronger roles and must be included, as well.
In 2017 the ProSTEP iViP set out to define requirements for a Platform/Overlay architecture to support cross disciplinary lifecyle collaboration. The project included members from the automotive industry in Germany. In summer 2018, participating software vendors started building demonstrators to prove the approach. This session will give an overview of the challenges, solutions, and results of this project.
