Guarantee Consistency of Model Architecture, Data, and Interfaces

SimuQuest’s Premier Tool for Agile Model-Based Design Delivers Innovation, Safety, and Speed to Market

SOFTWARE SAFETY STANDARDS COMPLIANCE

UniPhi

Absolutely Consistent Model-Based Design for Embedded Software.

We are in the age of electric and autonomous vehicles – an age of exponentially increasing embedded software complexity, with a business imperative to innovate and achieve rapid time-to-market while maintaining optimal safety standards. However, despite the continuous refinement of application lifecycle management (ALM) and testing tools, inconsistency continues to pervade the industry, causing missed deadlines, safety issues, and expensive recalls.

UniPhi offers real-time collaborative engineering for agile model-based design and provides a solution to the problem of inconsistency throughout development – from designing and building the architecture of digital models for simulation, to fully integrated and tested software. UniPhi aligns all stakeholders and software artifacts around a version-controlled single source of truth that checks for design violations any time a change is made.  When people, process, and technology are aligned, electronics are innovative, safe, and delivered ahead of schedule.

UniPhi Model-Based Design

Key Development Advantages

✅     Teams are aligned around a single source of truth enabling a new level of real-time collaboration.

✅     Agile development can be efficiently managed and embraces change for any level of complexity.

✅     Traditionally manual, time-consuming, and error-prone tasks are automated.

✅     Developers are freed up to innovate and implement the correct logic according to requirements.

✅     Complete transparency is achieved, teams immediately understand the impact of each change.

Going deeper.

Managing the development of complex systems in a consistent manner is nearly impossible without a mechanism to ensure all developers converge towards the same design requirements and software architecture, and have a unified view of the entire system. At any moment, it can be difficult to understand or access the latest version of model architecture and data. This leads to a lack of visibility – resulting in duplicated development efforts, incorrect assumptions, and missed errors.  

UniPhi projects represent the digital twin of your embedded system, integrating all software artifacts that compose it. As distributed teams design and build software, UniPhi supervises all development efforts to ensure every software artifact is consistent with your design requirements — checking architecture, data, and interfaces simultaneously. It’s like deploying thousands of probes that detect errors across the network of all your users, all in real-time. When it’s time to create an integrated system model for simulation testing, the entire process is automated, saving your team from the headache that is manual system integration and speeding up your development timeline.

Centralized Architecture & Interface Management

Centralized Architecture Management

Maintain a single source of truth for all development artifacts and ensure consistency between all interfaces as you design and build the actual virtual models and software architecture of your embedded system. Encourage reuse of logic across all relevant applications and enable automated impact analysis of proposed interface changes.  

Centralized Data Management & Visualization

Centralized Data Management

Manage data consistency across the lifetime of product software. Eliminate redundant data definitions and enforce rational data definition rules. Enable visibility into definition changes and easily share data across distributed teams. Graphically visualize multi-dimensional data objects to quickly understand mathematical relationships.

Rules and Mitigations

Rules and Mitigations

Built-in rules provide immediate feedback if a change to software artifact architecture, data, or interfaces has introduced an error or inconsistency. Eliminate unit or data type mismatches, specify organization-wide naming conventions, ensure requirements coverage, and more. Mitigations often offer automatic resolutions to the root cause of detected errors.

Standards Compliance

Custom Rules and Mitigations

Create custom rules and mitigations to enforce adherence to software or process standards (e.g. ISO26262, ASPICE, CMMI, etc.). Maintain team alignment regardless of growing software complexity and facilitate immediate identification of violations to your design requirements. Share across projects to eliminate repeated effort and guarantee future compliance.

Seamless Simulink Integration

Automatic Model Integration

Import existing legacy models for reuse and quickly instrument them to comply with your latest design requirements and safety/process standards. Automate the system integration process and eliminate headaches arising from manual integration efforts.

Data Dependency Analysis

Data Dependency Explorer

Quickly scan object dependencies in text-based and graphical contexts to visualize the flow of data throughout software. Highlight model calculation paths and data object usages to precisely understand every relationship between the software artifacts in virtual models.

Built-In Version Control

Version Control

Commit and revert changes to projects, view the entire history of software artifact contributions, and dynamically update project architecture and data. Easily visualize differences between shared features and resolve conflicts between code changes with ease — no matter where your team members are geographically located. 

Requirements & Test Management

ReqIF Import

Import Requirements and Tests from other tools via ReqIF or Excel for complete traceability to all software artifacts. Cleanly separate System, Software, and other categories of Requirements and Tests as needed. Automatically create and execute test harness models to ensure comprehensive test coverage.

Customizable & User-Friendly APIs

Requirements & Tests

Support changing standards and interfacing with external APIs. Directly access project data with web-based queries and automate simulation testing with Continuous Integration.  Configure a custom user permissions scheme that provides end-to-end visibility into your development process, with the ability to limit read and write access as needed.

Tool Interoperability

AUTOSAR Import

Support interoperability with the tools your team is already using – from application lifecycle management (ALM), requirements and test management, simulation and modeling, to AUTOSAR tools. Leverage your tools to their maximum potential and allow UniPhi to ensure your entire development process is kept absolutely consistent.

What UniPhi Customers are Saying

SimuQuest’s UniPhi tool has exceeded our requirements and expectations in terms of data management, ease of use, and model architecture visualization.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY

The SimuQuest tools enabled us to complete an entire program with 1 developer in 18 months. Conservatively speaking, without these tools this would easily have taken 5 man-years of effort.

MSD PERFORMANCE

We no longer have the drama that we used to have around debugging.
