IESF 2013: Europe
IESF Europe is the conference and expo for EE Design in the automotive, commercial vehicle and off-highway industry now in Europe in its 4th year. The event is designed specifically for electrical/electronic design engineers, managers, and executives.
The electrical and electronic systems can represent up to 40% of the total cost of a car and are a major contributor of differentiated selling features whilst at the same time providing essential sub-systems for drive, efficiency and safety. Those automotive platforms are a complex integration of multi-disciplined designs and the engineering task of designing such platforms requires coordination of teams and disciplines.

Guest-speaker - Angelo Mattivi, Yazaki Europe
Yazaki Europe has a long experience in standardising ERP applications. Angelo Mattivi will explain what parallels can be drawn between ERP and engineering world, what benefits can be achieved through a standard approach, how specific, individual customer requirements can be met using standard tools, and how Yazaki is using Mentor tools to support this strategy.
Systems Engineering At The Platform Level
Keynote Nick Smith, Mentor Graphics
This presentation explores how Mentor's Capital software models platform connectivity across abstractions. It shows how new technology allows companies to understand the impact of and respond to changes across multiple engineering disciplines.
Keynote: Importance of Systems Engineering for Aston Martin
Alan Bennett will describe the Aston Martin approach to engineering low volume, high luxury sports cars. Using examples from the recently launched Vanquish and the One-77 hyper car, he will highlight some of the challenges faced and how operating at a system level allows efficient delivery of complex networks with limited resources.
An Integrated Systems Engineering Approach - How trace Requirements to Electronics and Software
As electrical systems become ever more sophisticated, leading organizations are adopting a systems engineering approach to EE design. This session presents new integrations between Capital and IBM's Rational tools that support this approach. Requirements captured in Rational DOORS can be natively surfaced within Mentor EE design and implementation tools, allowing designers to understand the context of their work better and giving project managers impact visibility when requirements change. Together with task and test case management, this provides a robust environment that streamlines development processes while minimizing on-going IT costs.
The objective of the forum is to explore solutions to the Connected Engineering™ challenges associated with automotive platform developments. IESF Europe will debate the hurdles which teams experience moving “down and back up” the V-model diagram across multiple domains. Interactions between the electrical, network, ECU and software domains, tracking requirements, Linux-based IVI and Instrument Cluster solutions and managing change will be discussed as the day develops.
