Background



Nowadays, there are various brands and models of high-end vehicles running around with built-in high Technology Systems. There is a system for handling or safety, vehicle powering, driver information, climate, comfort functions, infotainment and lightings. These high-end features enable the user to enjoy the most entertaining ride, yet never leave behind convenience and safety.Product Design and Engineering plays a major role in the development of these high Technology Systems.

However, the automotive industry, especially in the US and Europe is facing intense competitive pressures due to rising labor costs, shorter product cycles, dropping profitability and rapid growth in emerging markets. Because of this, there is a need to cut costs in any way possible without sacrificing product quality. This is were we come in!

We provide cost-effective and high quality Product Design and Engineering Support services to the Automotive and Electronics industries. We have teams composed of highly skilled engineers with relevant experience in this field.


Services Offered

 

2D Design Drafting with GD &T: A two-dimensional documentation in which a detailed production mechanical drawings are created as stand-alone drawings or associative of a 3- dimensional product geometry or solid model. In associative detailing: orthographic, section, detail and auxiliary views are created along with dimensions and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) symbology.


Software Validation: The process of checking that a developed software system meets specifications and that it fulfills its intended purpose. In other words, it ensures that ‘you built the right thing’.

In automotive software, validation can be done through Manual or Automatic Testing. Manual Testing is a simulation of an actual Car, manipulating its functions and features through Test Panels, GUI (Graphic User Interface), and other Test Equipment and Measurements, with the real output being compared to the expected output in the Customer Specifications. Automatic Testing utilizes an Auto Tester, with results being taken from the generated log files. From interior and exterior lights, locking, mirrors, windows, alarm systems to the more complex features (e.g. diagnostics, key authentication and programming, tire pressure monitoring and network management) there is a need to validate whether these parts function normally or not, based on the Customer Specifications.


Design Validation (Fusing, Voltage Drop, Grounding Verification): Involves Power Verification on both Fusing & Grounding and Voltage Drop. These series of tests will provide guidelines for standardized fusing of electronic functions in vehicle designs with the following objectives:

      1. To protect every possible Wiring Harness Circuit
      2. To separate Critical from Convenience function
      3. To separate “Noisy” functions from “Clean” signals
      4. To commonize Circuitry design
