IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) for Automotive

Mercedes-Benz embarked on a digital transformation journey to automate processes amid a growing level of automotive complexity. The research and development team found a game-changer in IBM model-based systems engineering, to help simulate holistically a customer function, derive a behavior model and generate the right architecture. Teams are able to move beyond technology to manage the different dimensions of engineering data.

IBM Engineering application portfolio helps engineers

Automotive OEMs and suppliers are faced with the challenge of designing anddeveloping increasingly complex products that must be brought to market more rapidly and deliver new functionality.

IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM), an integrated portfolio of capabilities for systems, EE and software engineering, provides the ideal foundation for dealing with these challenges. Our automotive capability includes ELM Automotive Compliance, which helps to streamline adherence and greatly increase the value from state-of-the-art engineering practices and standards such as Automotive SPICE (ASPICE), ISO-26262, SOTIF, ISO/SAE 21434 and WP.29.

Driving ahead with ASPICE

Comply with automobile industry standards and accelerate time to market using IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management software.

IBM Engineering benefits for Automotive

Requirements and systems engineering

Provide visibility across the development team by linking requirements to system models, software, EE and testing to improve quality and reduce time to market.

Strategic reuse

Reduce costs and improve productivity by reusing designs, features and architectures. Create and manage product variants and versions within and across product lines.

EE and software design

Develop the software and an executable logical architecture of the vehicle software, electrical, and electronics to support the allocation of functionality to these domains.

Leverage agile

Accelerate deployment with agile processes while having confidence in meeting critical milestones. Use agile (SAFe) or waterfall processes within a single project.

Verification and validation

Develop and manage test cases supporting MIL, SIL, HIL, including automated test generation linked to requirements, test benches, and test results.

Minimize compliance effort

Integrated templates, processes and reporting for standards and regulatory compliance to reduce audit time and costs. Support of ASPICE, ISO-26262, SOTIF, ISO-21434 and WP.29.


Managing complexity in automotive development

Automotive engineers build some of the planet’s most complex assets. Yet they must still deliver these assets on time and on schedule.Managing complexity
