KPIT has a vast hands-on experience of working with industry's top OEMs. The company helped an OEM in developing Functional Safety Requirements as per ISO 26262 for Powertrain System (Engine management system and Transmission Control Module etc.). This included complete functional safety concept development like identifying the primary function, functional analysis, hazard and risk analysis, ASIL allocation, arriving at Functional Safety Requirements (FSR), etc. KPIT also helped the OEM to develop multiple templates helping them perform the safety analysis efficiently.
The company is involved with another OEM to support the requirement management of vehicle function development, mainly in the powertrain domain. This included creating requirement document in DOORs for many powertrain functions such as engine start stop, torque management, cruise control functionality, traction control systems etc. KPIT identified critical requirements after performing DFMEA (Design Failure Mode & Effect Analysis) for all the functionalities. Since it is necessary for all the requirements to be verifiable, we also develop the system level DVPR (Design Validation Plan & Report) for the functions. This required us to work closely with the OEM systems engineer and controls team to assimilate the requirements.
KPIT supports various OEMs in managing their vehicle functional requirements and development. Many of our systems engineers work with the OEMs as vehicle function owners who take care of the entire evolution of vehicle functions in different vehicle models. We support the OEMs in their engineering process requirement.
We also help the OEM in identifying critical requirements for functions by performing DFMEAs and ISO 26262 related Hazard And Risk Analysis (HARA).
Because of our widespread experience we are able to partner with OEMs at all stages of Verification & Validation (V&V) activity, starting from creation of DVP documents till validation of vehicle functions on HIL or in prototype vehicles.
KPIT provides technical solutions to improve the current requirement management process by introducing many systems engineering tools that can improve the traceability and scalability of the requirements. KPIT has been engaged in requirement analysis, configuration management and V&V area of the systems engineering. KPIT has built a robust systems engineering capability & brought enormous value for our customers, enabling them to make better & accurate designs, thus, significantly impacting their businesses.
