CESAR Cost-Efficient Methods and Processes for Safety Relevant Embedded Systems


The embedded safety-critical systems design and development industry is facing increasing complexity and variety of systems and devices, coupled with increasing regulatory constraints while costs, performances and time to market are constantly challenged. CESAR will bring significant and conclusive innovations in the two most improvable systems engineering disciplines: (1) Requirements engineering in particular through formalization of multi viewpoint, multi criteria and multi level requirements, (2) Component based engineering applied to design space exploration comprising multi-view, multi-criteria and multi level architecture trade-offs. In addition, CESAR intends to provide industrial companies with a breakthrough in system development by deploying a customizable systems engineering "Reference Technology Platform" (RTP) making it possible to integrate or interoperate existing or emerging available technologies.
