Nowadays electronic components serve an ever greater role in the automotive
industry. As more and more functions are handled by electronic components, these
components become increasingly complex, their development at the same time becomes
harder. To handle this complexity the system engineer role was born, this analyzes the
components on a system level. The car manufacturers, to ensure the quality of their
products, developed the ASPICE standard. This standard regulates and rates the
development processes of the automotive electronics suppliers, including the system
During my thesis I have analysed and exercised the system development
according to the ASPICE standard. After acquiring the background knowledge I have
prepared a component’s requirement specification and architectural design. In my paper
I describe the methods and tools used during the development, and give examples to them.
During the development process I have realized, that some steps can be
automated. With the automation the development can be simplified and speeded up.
Therefore I have written several scripts and programs amid the thesis work, most of them
extend the capabilities of IBM Rational DOORS. In my thesis I have included the
description of the development steps of these extensions.
