Automatic Transition Between Structural System Views in a Safety Relevant Embedded Systems Development Process

It is mandatory to design safety relevant embedded systems in multiple structural system views. A typical example is the usage of a functional and technical system representation. A transition between these system views not only comprises the allocation of components but also copes with multiple design aspects and constraints that need to be transferred to the target perspective. Optimization goals regarding arbitrary design artifacts complicate this problem. In this paper we present a novel comprehensive approach integrating common allocation techniques together with a partial design generation in a system wide process to optimize complex system view transitions. We demonstrate our approach using the CESAR design methodology. The original system models and requirements are used as input for our procedure and the results are directly applied to the same models.
