The Challenge
Automotive supplier Continental was faced with the challenge of saving time, reducing costs, and standardizing the development process across its globally dispersed development sites. The company also had to meet the requirements of the functional safety standard ISO 26262. This necessitated a global effort to standardize the development process during every phase and at every geographic site, using common processes and tools. The challenge was not only to streamline and standardize the development process but also to ensure compliance with safety standards across all its development sites.
The Customer
About The Customer
Continental is a leading automotive supplier with a global presence. The company was looking to save time, cut costs, and standardize the development process at its globally dispersed development sites. It also needed to meet the requirements of the functional safety standard ISO 26262. The company has 48 development sites around the world, and the challenge was to standardize the development process during every phase and at every geographic site, using common processes and tools.
The Solution
Continental adopted the Wind River® Diab Compiler to address its challenges. This OS-agnostic tool suite provided Continental developers with a C/C++ compiler, an assembler, a linker, ANSI C and C++ libraries, and an instruction set simulator. This comprehensive tool suite was everything Continental needed to speed up development, ensure software quality, and standardize its global development data. Wind River rigorously tests each release of the suite to ensure functional safety standards throughout the development process and provides support to the customers who use it. By updating its tool suite with the Wind River® Diab Compiler, Continental was able to standardize tools and processes, thereby lowering its development costs significantly.
Operational Impact
  • The adoption of the Wind River® Diab Compiler resulted in increased developer efficiency and standardized results across Continental's global development sites. The tool suite not only sped up the development process but also ensured software quality. The rigorous testing of each release of the suite by Wind River ensured that functional safety standards were met throughout the development process. This also provided Continental with the assurance and support it needed to use the tool suite effectively. The standardization of tools and processes led to a significant reduction in development costs.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Lowered development costs by more than 30%
  • Standardized development process across 48 global sites
  • Ensured compliance with ISO 26262 at each development site
