Enhanced Safety and Efficiency for the Software Design Process at Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America (MBRDNA) recently carried out a large software model refactoring project with the help of MES M-XRAY® (MXRAY), aiming to reduce and manage complexity in one of is E-Drive software models. The reviewed model is responsible for functions such as torque and traction, and it had grown significantly as further requirements and additional stakeholders, including developers and testers, were added. MBRDNA’s main objective was to improve the testability and understandability of the model by reducing both subsystem-level complexity and complexity at the level of the entire integrated software model. This presentation will look at the steps MBRDNA took and how, as a result, the team has been able to greatly improve the overall readability, testability, navigation, and maintainability of its software modules.
