Methods for development of E/E-systemarchitectures in early phases



Start date:


End date:


The E/E system in trucks are becoming increasingly more complex through the introduction of more electronics and software. This trend is expected to proceed, and it pose requirements on the system architecture and methods for designing architectures. The projects aims at surveying challenges and methods for choosing architecture, and then develop new appropriate methods in close cooperation with industry. The methods should together ensure that both aspects of technology and business is considered in the early phases. Since the methods should be a special support in the early phases, uncertainty and risks should be treated by the methods. This is a PhD-project that builds on a previous PhD-project (CODEX) and it will be clustered with a similar project initiated by the Volvo companies (2 PhD-students). The project will support cooperation between industry and academia.
