The As-Is | Diagnostic development life-cycle & prevalent gaps

In typical OEM set-ups, diagnostics requirement data is managed in proprietary data formats, and is used across OEM departments, in addition to Tier X suppliers & tool vendors.

Diagnostic development life-cycle

Ideally, a development process needs to ensure data transparency, uniformity, and re-use. However, the lack of
a standardized, integrated & an automated diagnostic approach results in development silos and
disparate tooling/data systems.

Major impacts include
  • Redundant and duplicated development efforts
  • Varied skill requirements
  • Design and cost in-efficiencies
  • Delayed time-to-market, owing to extended
    development cycles

How to plug these gaps?

The Engineering diagnostics toolchain from KPIT provides the answer. The toolchain has been at the core of addressing these challenges & transforming the diagnostic development landscape at leading automotive/industrial equipment OEM.
