Purpose and goal
Define architectural approaches evaluating and balancing the potentially contradicting future needs. Define architectural approaches enabling flexibility in procurement of different variants. Define architectural approaches enabling continuous integration and deployment of functionality. Define architectural approaches enabling the car as a system in a system of systems. Define architectural approaches enabling incremental architectures. Define architectural approaches, corresponding product life cycle management, and business models.
Expected results and effects
NGEA have structure it´s deliverable in a way so that it enables cooperation between the academia and the industry. NGEA have built competence through actively drive competence exchange with other FFI project like FUSE, BADA, Sec. Road and Holisec. We have compiled several public FFI reports and several journal and papers. Several reports have also presented on multiple workshops, national and international conferences. The NGEA develop architectural evaluation method have already started to be used by partners to present the connection between business and architecture.
Planned approach and implementation
NGEA is a project with many partners within the industry and the academy, which has spread knowledge broadly. Through publications and open workshops, we have reached a wider audience. We have worked through the entire project with user scenario as the starting point. The development and analysis of scenarios has given us a solid foundation for attacking the focus areas of the project. We have developed and used an evaluation method in which we analyse results against NGEA´s scenario. Organized ourselves through working groups that enabled close cooperation with all partners.
