  • Validate vehicle models (Active and passive)
  • Ensure the Maintenance of the Benches needed (HIL, SIL, Customer Bench) according to stakeholders needs
  • Bus communication set-up between model signals and ECU or between two different ECUs (the ECUs could be either physical or simulated depending on the system requirements);
  • CarMaker scenarios definition and/or adaption depending on desired requirements.
  • to support in the fault injection plan and proper signal communication.
  • SW development such as HMI: such as on vehicle including dashboard, Key Status (or Ignition Working Condition or vehicle state handling), maneuvers definition, Automatic failure generation set up, Vehicle BUS definition as easy as possible (Example staring from dbc files)
  • Support to create a flexible architecture to ensure the SIL/MIL/HIL closed loop simulation on OEM & Conti Test benches.
  • Test Cases according to Customer & Internal Continental needs for reaching a full test scope
  • Test Automation when feasible
  • Data collecting / Failure analysis/ reports generation
  • Establish Test Management Board (TMB)
  • Monitoring of release test activities, support deviation.
  • Review test results and monitoring of action items.
  • Develop a project specific test strategy
  • Define test activities & schedule (TPS)
  • Support and establish customer specific test
  • Responsible for test related customer Communication, FlashLoader, Network Management, Transport Protocol, Physical Layer & Diagnostic
  • Create release recommendation
  • Coordinate and align test strategy, test benches, test tools cross locations


Additional responsibility & Support:

  • Support of different requirements engineers for the correct requirements analysis, interpretation, and internal requirement translation for the developers
  • Define a requirement implementation timing and traceability
  • Manage the requirements changes request and requirements release packages.
