Manufacturers and suppliers have to increasingly optimize their processes to be able to continue developing and testing ever more complex system and software architectures as for highly automated vehicles, for example. More than ever before, they have to coordinate the various development phases with each other, from system design to validation, and implement them in a process-reliable manner. dSPACE Consulting offers consultancy projects to support you in defining processes and optimizing them throughout all phases of ECU development, independent of whether dSPACE tools are used. 

Key Benefits

To optimize processes, to reach goals faster and more efficiently, or to develop more complex products using existing tool chains, current processes must be analyzed and understood. dSPACE captures and structures complex processes and develops concepts to master new challenges. Therefore, the spectrum of the consultancy ranges from analyzing established processes and identifying the resulting optimization needs to suggestions for structuring new development processes and their implementation. dSPACE specialists also evaluate the suitability of processes for defined projects and evaluate how beneficial new processes and tools are for you. They also assist you with necessary adjustments.

Decades of experience, particularly in the automotive industry, but also in many other areas, such as aerospace or medical engineering, make dSPACE a competent partner if you want to develop and test electric/electronic systems. Specialists at dSPACE who are successfully working on projects around the world can quickly analyze your processes and identify potential for optimization. Their knowledge with regard to development tools and tool chains helps you establish lean and efficient processes.
