Automotive Data Dictionary V8.1

产品简介:Visu-IT! 公司的Automotive Data Dictionary(简称ADD)包括了所有公司或组织中使用的ECU labels/variables,是一个全球性的数据字典。ADD的统一资源简化了所有项目之间data declarations的处理和管理。正是因为这些label在全公司的可用性和唯一性,ADD可以支持在整个开发过程中,达到连续的和一致的data declarations。

The Visu-IT! Automotive Data Dictionary represents a global data dictionary for all ECU labels/variables used in a company/organization. The single source concept of ADD eases the handling and management of data declarations over all projects. Due to the (company-wide) availability and uniqueness of these labels, ADD allows a continuous and consistent data declaration during the whole development process.
 
Focus: single source of all data declarations
global, company-wide label database, specification view, no implementation details
 
Scope: global, project and module scope

 General Information



Main objective of ADD is to centralize all data elements/definitions and to support the reuse of these data for the function development part as well as for the software development. This means that everyone is able to select a data definition from a single source, where the data is stored unique, project- as well as editor- independent. Thus it is ensured, that the data definitions are equal in the whole development process.
è ADD avoids redundancy of data due to company wide availability and ensures uniqueness of these data.
 
Continuous Data Process



With ADD, a continuous data process from the step "System" to "Software" is possible. ADD closes the interface gap between function- and software development, ensures data consistency
and thus improves the quality and reduces the efforts for the system as well as for the oftware development.
 

Objectives



The main objectives for a seamless data definition covered by ADD are:
 

  • to provide a central and company-wide accessible database as a single source for data definitions (project- as well as editor-independent!)
  • to ensure company(world)-wide availability and multi-user capability
  • to support consistency checks during the definition
  • to ensure data consistency by using versioning and lifecycle for all data definitions
  • to allocate data and data flow driven search and analyze capabilities
  • to provide a continuous data process from System to Software
  • to improve the quality of the interface description
  • to provide check operations of several hierarchy levels (modules, aggregates and projects) in a very early step of the development process

Key Features
 


 

  • Management of data objects (ECU labels/variables) ECU variables are: Measurements, Parameters, Axes, Maps and "System constants" (cDefines)
  • Version management of data objects (versions and revisions)
  • Lifecycle management of data objects and datatypes (draft, fixed, obsolete, etc.)
  • Grouping of data objects (container-concept) including overview-picture of container with link to the data object definitions
  • Extensive Search and query functionality (for data objects, datatypes, etc.) including cross-references, etc.
  • Show differences between workspace- and database entries
  • User-Management including User/Role concept for the control of access authorization
  • Creation of XML-format and support of other formats using style sheets (HTML for reports, MSR SW DTD...)
  • Management of data object attributes like physical units, format string, conversions, data types, limits, etc.

 
Process flow & Interfaces



The following figure shows possible interfaces of ADD to other tools and the principal process flow:
 
By providing a smart and flexible interface to DDS, all interfaces of DDS (like ASAP2, ELF, I3E, CVX, etc.) are implicitly also available in ADD.
