Challenges of using UML and SysML in Automotive Projects

Automotive software architects and systems engineers spend a lot of time with creating ISO26262-compliant documentation, by creating UML models from AUTOSAR architecture designs, or establishing traceability between requirements captured in SysML and design artefacts that exist in both modeling languages. However, as a project progresses and the work of engineers diverge, keeping AUTOSAR and UML/SysML in synch can be a tedious, slow, and error-prone task – especially when you are already grappling with tight timelines and limited resources

Software Architecture (AUTOSAR), System Architecture (UML/SysML), Low-level design (UML Behavior)

Furthermore, as AUTOSAR focuses on architecture and interfaces, the transition from architecture to detailed design may also impose copy-pasting or re-entering data into a UML tool. This is a major source of frustration for software engineers, who just want to focus on their work instead of wasting time.

The culprit in both cases is the lack of automation, resulting in missed deadlines and cost overruns.

This works for both documentation purposes, as well as handover automation between architecture and detailed design. The IncQuery AUTOSAR-UML Bridge creates UML elements for the complete AUTOSAR hierarchy, so that software component and sequence diagrams can be created easily. Its seamless integration with Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect helps to streamline the overall design process.

Furthermore, it can also work with LieberLieber’s LemonTree, to enable agile iterations where collaborating architects and engineers can easily merge changes from AUTOSAR into the corresponding UML model, without having to redo or delete anything. Finally, your team can focus on really important tasks, instead of wasting time with manual work. Say goodbye to manual processes and embrace this cutting-edge solution today.

Key Features

Simplifies the creation of UML diagrams for AUTOSAR models to just a few clicks.

Therefore, a month-long manual process becomes an automated workflow that delivers results in a few minutes.

This automated process remains fast, even for large AUTOSAR projects.

The workflow is user-friendly and efficient, freeing up your engineering team to focus on important work.

All versions of AUTOSAR are supported.

Fast and scalable push-button solution

The IncQuery AUTOSAR-UML Bridge provides a push-button solution for creating and maintaining UML models based on an AUTOSAR project. Supporting all versions of AUTOSAR via the ARTOP framework, the AUTOSAR-UML Bridge allows you to automatically import any AUTOSAR project into Enterprise Architect and create a complete and faithful representation of all AUTOSAR elements, properly stereotyped with an automatically generated profile that corresponds to the particular version of AUTOSAR used. Even large AUTOSAR projects can be imported safely, without losing fidelity.

Complete and faithful representation of AUTOSAR in UML

The imported elements can then be used to create various UML diagrams, such as software compositions, sequences and others. Additionally, you can also link them to SysML projects, e.g., to establish requirement realization relationships for the purpose of ISO26262/ASPICE-compliant traceability capture.

Tight integration with LemonTree

The IncQuery AUTOSAR-UML Bridge is tightly integrated with LieberLieber’s LemonTree, a state-of-the-art diff-and-merge tool for Enterprise Architect. This integration allows Automotive Systems or Software Engineers to use LemonTree’s capabilities to easily follow up on AUTOSAR changes, by re-importing and safely merging into the Enterprise Architect UML project. This way, UML stakeholders can stay in synch in every project iterations, without having to waste time on manual reviews and data reentry.
