General Motors Europe: Automatic validation of diagnostic services
For the first time, a fully automated test case generator has been introduced in diagnostics validation at General Motors Europe (GME) Development. This article describes the introduction of this automated testing of diagnostic implementations based on the example of the new Opel Insignia. An electronically readable diagnostic specification forms the basis for test generation. The article describes how the tool used - CANoe.DiVa from Vector - was integrated in the existing tool environment, and it addresses cost and time savings as well as improvements to technical processes that were realized compared to conventional, manual validation at the Opel Corsa.
