Effective test processes for ECU development

Standardized test processes, reusable test cases, testing across different sites: The test automation software EXAM is a solution and methodology for the graphical development of test cases. In addition to hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) simulation and test bench automation, areas of application include industrial automation, embedded development and software-in-the-loop (SiL) simulation. 

Since 2006, AUDI AG, Volkswagen AG and MicroNova have jointly developed the test automation solution. 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.

With the increasing complexity and functionality of ECUs, the challenges for test programmers are also growing. It is more important than ever to optimally map the large variety of projects and hardware platforms in the test process. On the one hand, this means developing cross-platform and reusable test cases in order to reduce development time as much as possible. On the other hand, it means giving the test programmer a tool that supports him in the best possible way in the development of test cases.

The freeware solution EXAM solves both challenges and supports test programmers, test managers and test result reviewers during the complete test process - from specification to result management.
