DESIGN | Softing TDX.studio

Design Component from the Softing TDX Toolbox

Softing TDX.studio is the intuitive development environment for creating individual repair shop testers based on international standards. This makes it possible for OEMs and component manufacturers to provide control-unit and problem-specific repair and maintenance procedures.  The user interface (GUI), diagnostic data (ODX), underlying diagnostic services (UDS) and diagnostic sequences (OTX) can be freely designed and combined to suit any application scenario.

Users

  • Designers of user interfaces and operating concepts
  • Creators of diagnostic sequences and diagnostic functions
  • Creators of the structure and hierarchical workflows of the diagnostic tester
  • Creators/adapters of the diagnostic database

Functions

  • Freely designing a repair shop tester for after-sales diagnostics including
    • Operating logic
    • User interface (GUI)
    • Underlying diagnostic services (UDS), diagnostic sequences (OTX) and diagnostic data (ODX)
    • Diagnostic content (such as repair instructions, exploded drawings, videos and web content)
    • Definition and integration of required reports
  • Implementing backend connections, e.g. to logistics systems
  • Storing languages

Overview

With Softing TDX.studio, user interfaces can be designed completely individually from high-end interfaces, like current vehicle dashboards, to the complete adoption of a proprietary corporate design (CD). This is of particular benefit to multibrand suppliers. The workflows for the repair shop tester, which are also freely definable in terms of structure and hierarchy, make it possible to implement a unique operating concept. Additional information, such as repair instructions, exploded drawings, videos and web content, which support the mechanic during maintenance and the repair of vehicles and working machinery, can simply be integrated in the repair shop tester. It is also possible to assign different language IDs to the contents of the distribution packages, so that the packages are available in the required languages.

Templates and wizards support the Softing TDX.studio operator perfectly here. The result of working with the design tool is a consistent distribution package that can be made available for each diagnostic tester in worldwide use via the customer backend and released separately.

The Softing TDX toolbox is based on publicly available, international diagnostic standards. OTX and ODX data already used in the company can be reused, resulting in a unique continuity of the tool suite from engineering/development to manufacturing and after-sales service.
