AVL TEST LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT BRINGS TRANSPARENCY, ROBUSTNESS AND EFFICIENCY INTO THE CORE PROCESSES. 2 9 F O C U S ta for the required test execution, ensuring full utilization of all testing resources. The transparency and implementation of standardized procedures resolves conflicts at an early stage, reduces faults, avoids repeats and significantly reduces idle times. COMPREHENSIVE IMPLEMENTATION AT MANUFACTURERS AND SUPPLIERS The way in which the AVL Test Lifecycle Management system is implemented varies from customer to customer and can be adapted to the requirements, the area of application and the process. Some users employ the system – either as a partial or as a complete solution – locally in individual areas and development stages. Others profit from a scalable, cross-organizational solution. Gerald Sammer, product manager at AVL reports that, “Many OEMs and suppliers have been working for many years with our software, using it to control their complete testing processes. The system is used in diverse areas such as drive system, chassis suspension, tires and wheels, passive safety, complete vehicle and electronics. The standardized processes make it much easier for the individual areas to collaborate and make optimal use of synergetic opportunities.” When the Test Lifecycle Management system is integrated into the methodology and tool landscape, it can be networked with product lifecycle management systems (PLMs), business software solutions (such as SAP) or data management systems already in use. BEST PRACTICE APPROACH THROUGH YEARS OF TESTING EXPERIENCE Thomas Guntschnig, Head of Segment for Test Information Management at AVL, says that “Customers very often decide in favor of our solution because it speaks the language of the developer, the test facility engineer, the test driver and the technician. It has been specifically designed for testing processes in the automotive environment and is based on the many years of experience we have from our own automotive development projects. To put it like this, the ‘best practices’ are included. This not only increases acceptance by the user, but it also helps the system to be seamlessly integrated into a customer’s existing processes.” < Verification Order Disposition Preparation it supports test request generation, planning, organization and control up to fault capture and reporting. CONSISTENT MANAGEMENT OF TEST JOBS – NETWORKED AND TRANSPARENT AVL’s Test Lifecycle Management system is a software solution that supports OEMs and suppliers worldwide in the implementation of their networked test jobs. It does this by covering the entire process – from test drives, via tests on the test bed and in the laboratory up to virtual tests. This is done by managing all relevant information, connecting it in real-time and making it available at any time and any location. Such information may consist of, to name just a few items, test order management, standardized test catalogs, testing equipment management, unit-under-test management, operating data acquisition, documentation and the evaluation and key performance indicators (KPIs). In order to make the resources available just in time, a planning module uses the database to provide the right units under test, testing equipment, models and da- Verification Execution Verification Monitoring Analysis Data Storage > AVL’s Test Lifecycle Management system is a software solution that supports OEMs and suppliers worldwide in the implementation of their networked test jobs.
