DAIMLER AG

CUSTOMER

DAIMLER AG

PROJECT

In this project, we develop and qualify central displays, head-up displays and RSE displays, audio systems, as well as search- and functional lighting for our customer Daimler AG.

TASKS

  • Securing the technical maturity level of components
  • Set up and test of specifications
  • Component tests according to specification
  • Conducting measuring according to official standards:
    • Display systems: optical tests, electric tests, CAN tests, vehicle tests, air condition tests, haptics, touch, perception-based tests, certification-relevant head-collision-impact test
    • Audio systems: impedance response, sound pressure, output level, frequency response, effectiveness of bass-/mid-/treble regulation, noise, harmonic distortion
    • Search- and functional lighting: spatially resolved luminance measurements, optical tests (color coordinates, homogeneity, luminance over viewing angle)
  • Creation of customer-specific measurement reports
  • Organization and execution of workshops
  • Ongoing and further development of measurement set ups according to customer and market requirements
  • Further development and update of test equipment and test software

CHALLENGES

Our aim and at the same time biggest challenge was to maintain a constantly high quality level for the various vehicle types from A-Class to S-Class, including a large variety of display sizes, audio components, switches and controls, and still meeting the high requests of our customers.

Moreover, with control and tests of initial- and prototype patterns we continually have to tweak and readjust the defect analysis. Regular software releases and hardware changes translate into constant modifications of measuring equipment for the requested quality standard.

We achieve all that by maintaining an expedient dialogue with our customers and their suppliers.

SOLUTIONS

On the basis of our long-term experience in the area of testing, which has grown over the years by working with a range of other leading manufacturers like Porsche, Audi or JDI; and building on our well-versed and technically highly skilled employees, as well as relying on our excellent infrastructure, we successfully execute our projects. The interaction of all of these factors creates the basis for a sustainable cooperation and high customer satisfaction. 

VOLKSWAGEN AG

CUSTOMER

VOLKSWAGEN AG

PROJECT

For our customer VOLKSWAGEN AG, we have supported the infotainment development from B sample to series production, including the development of the modular infotainment system MIB HIGH + / MIB HIGH Gen1 to Gen2 with 4 respective model upgrading. The infotainment system will be installed in the models Golf, Golf GTI and Passat.

TASKS

  • Set up from test planning up to series production; inter-divisional and in coordination with management
  • Supervision of test intensity of persons involved regarding the development process
  • Support for other divisions with hardware or software problems
  •  Conduction of incoming tests at the test bench for release recommendations of software versions
  • Organization and execution of one- or several-day test drivings with test vehicles in Germany or abroad

  • Modifications of test vehicles in line with the current state of development
  • Advancing the process of defect reduction in coordination with developers and suppliers
  • Drafting of project reports and evaluations for the management
  • Advising of the customer regarding the further strategy to achieve milestones

CHALLENGES

The challenges lie in identifying the information necessary to execute the project while mastering a flood of input and data. We are coordinating a large team with international players from Germany and all over the world. The challenge that presented itself was keeping in touch with all persons involved to receive all information necessary and coordinate the process of the project. Moreover, different cultural aspects and perspectives had to be taken into consideration.                        

We were part of the development of MIB HIGH infotainment systems from the first hour. With the growing complexity and increasing impact of vehicle controls onto the infotainment system, trouble shooting became more complex, posing new challenges to us with each project.

SOLUTION

To make it easier for our customers to adapt to changing project requirements, we have provided processes and tools for defect management. Additionally, we prepared information from the data base, drafting a clear and user-friendly list of defects. This list served us and all parties involved as a basis for day-to-day operations. We also established processes for our customers, to enable a fast adaptation to changing project requirements. With flexibility and by reacting fast, we were able to meet all challenges in such a way that high customer satisfaction could be achieved. Our long-term experience enabled us to use the infotainment software and the defect statistics to evaluate the defect progress and to develop suitable solutions to successfully finalize the project.

As a result of the intensive work on our projects we were able to acquire extensive, component-independent know-how in the area of testing. The benefit: a clear overview over the interaction of control units to be able to better evaluate occurring defects. As a result, we are able to independently bring test vehicles up-to-date. 

Through the successful realization of projects and our expertise, we became a principal contact for the entire test division of our customer.
