KPIT helped one of the large automotive manufacturers in developing a next generation platform for Engine Management software
architecture. The new architecture had to be built basis the current legacy functionality which led to multi-fold challenges such as
refactoring legacy issues, deployment of architecture workflow among others. The new software architecture being developed also
had to be AUTOSAR compliant.

KPIT leveraged its deep domain expertise, experience of working with range of tools and manage complex software programs and
global delivery and executions model to deliver.

Application migration followed a top down/round trip approach which involved up-front system decomposition and began with
future architecture requirements including product strategies.

Building blocks created from decomposed system were used as a starting point and existing behavioral software and models were
mapped to them. Conflicts and gaps in existing architecture were identified earlier thanks to the up-front definition of requirements.

Phased Approach

Phase 1:


  • VOC interviews across Departments
  • Analysis to identify Critical Functional Requirements(CFRs) from VOC inferences
  • Architecture, Workflow & Tools Approaches

Phase 2:

Architecture Tools and Framework

  • Architecture Tools and Framework
  • New System Architecture Guidelines
  • Standard Compliance for System Architecture
  • Tools Evaluation, Selection and Set-up
  • Central Data Dictionary (DD) Customization
  • MBDE Workflow Development & Tool Adaptation
  • Plan for Pilot Program and Compliance to ISO 26262

Phase 3

Feature Migration

  • Migration of existing features to prove the new
  • Standards Compliant application modeling for migrated features
  • Central DD Integration

Phase 4


  • HIL Testing
  • Vehicle Testing, Calibration
