Best Practice Guideline: Software Release

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.

This guideline summarises experiences and best practices for the essential aspects and present suggestions for an optimisation of the interface (communication and documentation) between the vehicle manufacturer and the supplier. 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.​
