Vehicle engineering is facing a range of challenges. This is why today manufacturers and their suppliers work together at a global level at which they need to be able to exchange data safely all over the world. The range of vehicles is constantly diversifying while the engineering cycles are becoming ever shorter. Vehicles must be maintained over the entire product life cycle which means that more and more tasks have to be completed in an ever shorter time. Technologically, the electrical-electronic components used are becoming more extensive and increasingly support networking and digitization. And, finally, compliance with legal requirements is becoming ever more important.
These trends have resulted in a greater number of test cases, all of which have increased in complexity. It is no surprise then that error analysis has acquired major importance in the engineering process. When selecting tools, users should remember that the aim is to develop diagnostics only once with subsequent implementation in the varying application cases in engineering, testing, manufacturing and inspection where they can continue to be used.
Softing offers the perfect diagnostic tool to face the upcoming challenges in vehicle engineering, whatever the application case.
