Distributed development in automotive

Learn what Distributed Development is in the automotive industry and which working documents help overcome current challenges

The successful execution of projects on time and along planned resources is a challenge for the automotive industry. Inaccuracies, misunderstandings and inconsistencies can lead to project failure, especially when cross-organizational players are involved in distributed development – from OEMs to Tier 1 suppliers to Tier 2 and further sub-suppliers. Particularly with regard to the ongoing need to integrate cybersecurity.

The video course sheds light on potential issues by explaining the importance of alignment, and what could be some of the unanswered questions from parties involved which could lead to misunderstandings.

After explaining the importance of distributed development and alignment, this video course  introduces the ISO/SAE 21434 working products specific for distributed development as basis for distributed development alignment, including the Supplier Evaluation Report and the Cybersecurity Interface Agreement for Development (CIAD in short).

Therefore, after watching this video course, you will be able to describe the different compositions of distributed development, its role and its importance, as well as be able to explain the most relevant documents for distributed development and have a solid foundation to get started.
