The automotive industry is becoming more and more focused on the necessity of a robust and efficient software development process. The lack of common standards right at the "software release" interface leads to a considerable coordination effort and possible misunderstandings.

The definition of the artefacts belonging to a software release is at the centre of this. The primary focus is an equal understanding of the contents with less emphasis being placed on standardised data formats.
