Effective test processes in the ECU development

The test automation software EXAM is a solution and methodology for the graphical development of test cases in the field of test automation. The main areas of application are hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) simulation and test bench automation in the automotive sector.

EXAM is the Volkswagen Group's central test automation tool worldwide today. The freeware provision enables the exchange of test cases across company boundaries. Despite distributed development, EXAM guarantees uniform procedures and results for suppliers and manufacturers.

We are one of the pioneers for test automation in the ECU development. As a core development partner of the Volkswagen Group in the test automation process EXAM we have, together with AUDI AG and Volkswagen AG, advanced a test automation solution that is now used throughout the Group worldwide. In addition to the further development of the freeware solution EXAM we assist more than 1,000 users in support, trainings and customized adaptations.

With the increasing complexity and functionality of ECUs the challenges for test programmers are rising. It is getting more important than ever to optimally reflect the wide variety of projects and hardware platforms in the testing process. That means, on the one hand, to develop cross-platform and reusable test cases in order to reduce development time as much as possible. On the other hand, it means to equip the test programmer with a tool that provides best possible support in the development of test cases.

The freeware solution EXAM meets both challenges and supports test programmers, test managers and test result reviewers in the whole test process - from the specification to the result management.
