Besides handling requirements management, hazards and risk analysis (ISO 26262), the current PREEvision 6.0 version from Vector now also includes functions for designing AUTOSAR architectures.
Vector released this version for E/E architecture development, which allows efficiency to be improved by using PREEvision with its universal approach to modeling E/E systems. It begins with requirements and extends to the logical architecture level, the hardware and software levels and finally the geometry. Many new functions have been implemented in Version 6.0 for developing AUTOSAR ECUs.
In the new version, AUTOSAR system descriptions can now be created, which include the internal behavior of software components. PREEvision supports exporting of these system descriptions that are extracted from the ECU. These components and their containers can be individually updated based on a system or software component description. This simplifies data exchange (round-trip) between PREEvision and other AUTOSAR tools from Vector and third party suppliers.
