Abstract:
The Body Control Module (BCM) is a huge integration site for vehicle features and functions.(i.e., Locking, Alarms, interior lighting, exterior lighting, etc…) . Every few years the demands to add more feature/functions and integrate more vehicle content increases. The expectation of the model year 2013 BCM, was to double the feature content and use it globally. The growth in feature/function content grew from 140 to over 300. This posed a major challenge to the current software development team based on the methods and process that were deployed at the time. This paper sites the cultural and technology changes that were overcome. Ford Motor Company partnered with Tata Consulting services to help manage and define this new software engineering development.
