Creating highest-quality embedded software

Within the automotive industry, best-in-class organizations pursue solid architecture and superior technical quality of embedded software —Siemens and Software Improvement Group (SIG) partner to deliver this unique offering.

Capital provides uniquely rich and frontloaded software architecture modeling and analyses, whereas Software Improvement Group brings 20 years of experience in measuring and enhancing software quality through automated monitoring and consulting services. This white paper outlines how the combined solutions enable you to create high-quality automotive software deliverables.

Software quality specification, rich architecture specification and quality monitoring

Automotive industry market trends point toward connected, increasingly autonomous, highly customized, electric, and networked vehicles that are perceived by the younger generation more as “tablets on wheels” than as classical vehicles. As a result, software quality is more important than ever, but also more challenging to achieve due to exploding code complexity. The integration between Capital and Sigrid provides first-class insight and guidance into all aspects of software quality for embedded software applications. The software addresses functional correctness and interfaces consistency during the pre-and post-implementation stages, plus application maintainability in architecture and implementation.

Software quality analysis driven from best practices

This paper highlights ten best practices for getting the embedded software development process set up right, consistently executing and monitoring metrics. Check out the paper for more details, but some best practices include:

  • Post-implementation code asset checking
  • Integrated software quality specification and analysis
  • Focus on product functionality and product quality
