AVL and ISID Seal Partnership to Further Accelerate Product Development
IT solutions provider and systems integrator Information Services International-Dentsu (ISID), headquartered in Tokyo, and one of the world's leading mobility technology companies AVL are pooling their expertise to accelerate technical product development. The companies will offer application-oriented and digital solutions and services for specific use cases in the manufacturing industry. The aim is to shorten product development times, encourage sustainable practices, and enhance the efficiency and quality of existing products.
Graz, Austria/Minato-ku, Japan, November, 2023: To address current manufacturing industry challenges, ISID and AVL are entirely rethinking current processes in product development. In doing so, the companies focus on the demands of both, market and customers for the end product. The emphasis is on the integration and interaction of software, respectively software updates and hardware. To design and implement efficient and high-quality processes as quickly as possible during product development, AVL contributes its expertise in automotive engineering, simulation, and testing from concept phase to finished product. IT solution provider ISID excels with its extensive experience in consulting and system integration based on Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE). When paired with AVL’s competence in applying MBSE, this allows vehicle manufacturers to centrally manage system requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities throughout the entire development process using digital system models. In this way, all participants maintain an overview of complex systems, interrelationships, and requirements.
The two companies are developing solutions to speed up product maturity while taking into account legal regulations for system safety. For instance, the management of engineering data, with reliable traceability throughout the entire development process, will be linked to project and risk management. Design decisions and verification processes will also be accelerated. In the field of mobility, ISID and AVL focus on the optimization of system development and integration based on the combination of ISID’s iQUAVIS and AVL software technologies for an end-to-end verification and validation process. Both e-mobility and autonomous driving are expected to benefit from this.
Ryoichi Nawa, President and CEO, ISID
We are honored to have entered into a strategic business partnership with AVL, a leader in mobility technology. ISID has been supporting the design and development processes of the manufacturing industry with IT solutions for many years. I am convinced that thanks to the partnership with AVL and their strengths in engineering, we will find suitable solutions for our customers’ current problems in the manufacturing industry. In the future, both companies will jointly support digital transformation and innovation on a global scale.
Prof. Helmut List, Chairman and CEO, AVL
In a world where product development is becoming increasingly complex, we at AVL strive to seamlessly unite virtual simulation and real-world testing. Our vision is to create technologies that combine the best of both worlds to develop cutting-edge and high-quality products. The Integrated and Open Development Platform (IODP) is AVL's answer to today's challenges. Partnering with ISID brings us closer to our vision. Instead of simply keeping pace with the ever-changing manufacturing industry, we are striving to shape the future - by providing comprehensive and efficient solutions that meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
