Development of a Software Architecture for the Shift Strategy Assessment Software based on the AVL Simulation Desktop


  • Analysis of existing software and target environment (AVL Simulation Desktop)
  • Evaluation of possibilities to carry over structure / code of the existing software into the final Plug-In
  • Break down of the resulting architecture into tasks / work packages and maintaining a critical path regarding timing estimation
  • Redesign / restructuring of the User Interface according to the possibilities and features of the AVL Simulation Desktop framework
  • Development of an architecture for the simplified vehicle model and current state of the software as Plug-In for AVL Simulation Desktop
  • Development of an extended architecture for handling AVL VSM simulation data as input for shift pattern assessment
  • Development of an extended architecture for handling Measurement data as input for shift pattern assessment
  • Close cooperation and communication with the software development team and support of the development iteration planning
  • Support of development


  • Software engineering and Business
  • Computer Science
  • Information Computer Engineering


  • Programming experience in Python, Java, Matlab
  • Experience in developing Software Architecture
  • Good command of English
  • Independent, goal-oriented work


The successful completion of the thesis is a one-time fee of EUR 2.500, - gross remuneration
