Towards Enabling Cross-Organizational Modeling in Automotive Ecosystems

This summer, I visited Canada as an international collaborator of NECSISĀ (Network for the Engineering of Complex Software-Intensive Systems for Automotive Systems) with the goal to identify synergies between my involvement in software center projects with Swedish industry (especially the Ecosystemability Assessment Method). We found that to a large extent partner industries of the NECSIS project recognize the same opportunities and challenges as Swedish industry, when it comes to engineering tomorrow’s complex software-centric systems.These stem in particular from the fact that development will increasingly be distributed over several organizations and that reliability and efficiency of development needs to be addressed across organizational borders. We will present preliminary results and future plans this week in the context of this work at MD2P2 Workshop at MoDELS 2014. Continue reading
