Smart, connected devices and the rise of automation are transforming products into complex multi-domain System of Systems to provide high Customer Value and Experience. There is a massive rise in the number of components, interfaces & interactions, disciplines, amount of data exchanged in the overall system resulting in unprecedented complexity. This is accelerating the need to reform product development through adoption of Systems Engineering methodologies.
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) introduces a systematic, methodical approach focused on requirements management, systems modelling & specifications, traceability, impact analysis, integrated validation planning and reporting with the objective to motivate innovation in products. Benefits include better collaboration, improved quality, and higher productivity. TCS, with its rich experience in automotive engineering and product development has matured its Systems Engineering capabilities. TCS partners with clients to develop a robust strategy and roadmap integrating process and technology capabilities to realize targeted business architecture towards next generation Product Lifecycle Management.
ALM PLM Integration
The last decade has seen the placement of embedded software content in every aspect of the automotive domain, be it infotainment systems, engine control units, or the next generation connected car development. The software content, in most cases, is now the key driver in providing value and overall customer experience. This puts the focus on managing application life cycle for embedded components and software pieces effectively and efficiently in conjunction with traditional PLM systems.
Most automotive organizations are fairly mature in their PLM and ALM. However, integration between ALM and PLM, especially with the speed of change, poses huge risks. Having a unified platform facilitating collaboration, traceability, and visibility would lead to lesser risk and higher value to its stakeholders. TCS with its domain expertise, tool development/deployment, system integration experience, and alliance partnerships can help organizations accelerate their journey to a mature state of integrated and interlinked multi-domain Product Development.
Even in today’s dynamic business scenario, automotive companies continue to use legacy IT applications across multiple business processes like Product Development, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, etc., which act as an “Achilles heel” to the organization’s progress. Legacy applications are the applications that inherit languages, platforms, and techniques earlier than current technology, are rendered monolithic in the current business scenario and technology landscape, and can often impede growth and innovation of enterprises.
Thus, modernization of these legacy applications is being increasingly perceived as an evident imperative to deploy efficient operations & processes, ensure enhanced visibility of processes across business functions, improve synchronization between demand and planning, reduce costs by optimizing business processes and ensure seamless process communications. TCS deploys established methodologies, proven frameworks, tools, and enablers to identify the need of the client and offers specific solutions that would enable clients to alleviate strategic business constraints, achieve the desired competitive edge, and successfully adopt the technological advantages of present day business environment.
