Test Field Planning: Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and plan comparisons enable reliable statements regarding the process quality of test fields

It is becoming more and more difficult for test field managers to meet the client’s requirements for flexible and punctual order processing and at the same time to achieve high utilization of cost-intensive test resources. The reason for this is the increasing number of test orders and test resources that have to be linked to one another in a complex network of processes.

Peak Test Data Manager: Data Repository for Scenario Based Testing

Evaluating the safety of driver assistance systems and autonomous driving functions is extremely complex and time-consuming. The direct interaction of vehicles with other road users creates an enormous amount of possible driving situations that need to be validated and verified. The efficient management of the underlaying driving scenarios is crucial for this task.

Peak BigODS Exporter connects ASAM ODS stores to Big Data Lakes

Worldwide a lot of test data is stored on the basis of the ASAM ODS standard. The need to analyze large amounts of this data is becoming increasingly important. At the same time, more and more powerful analysis tools are becoming available in the big data world. However, the “classical” storage options of the ASAM ODS standard are not well suited for these tools. For this reason, ASAM has responded by specifying an “Associate Standard” for ODS that connects existing ODS stores with big data ecosystems. Officially, the standard shall be published by ASAM in the first quarter of 2020. Continue reading “Peak BigODS Exporter connects ASAM ODS stores to Big Data Lakes”

Peak Test Management Suite: A solution to the increasing planning problem with Excel

A lot of test fields use Excel to plan, control and document test runs. The reason for this is obvious: creating an Excel application is often a quick and cost-effective way to manage test resources or schedule test activities. But with the increasing complexity of the test field, the historically grown applications inevitably reach their limits.

Peak Test Management Suite: “Validators” allow a flexible implementation of specific processes for scheduling test resources

Test facilities are faced with an increasing complexity of planning processes. The challenge is to schedule a variety of tasks, assign suitable resources such as test beds, measurement equipment and test engineers, and avoid at the same time potential scheduling conflicts across departments. Home-grown tools based on MS Excel or Outlook are increasingly reaching their limits.

Peak Advanced Search: Gain more information from the existing measurement channels in ASAM ODS

A widely used standard for the persistent storage of measurement data is ASAM ODS. Automotive manufacturers and suppliers use it primarily to set up comprehensive data management solutions for different measurement systems and data formats. In this way, they make test data usable in the long-term, regardless of the tools of individual vendors. Generally in such solutions, the search for certain measurements bases on descriptive information, the so-called metadata.

To gain more information from the existing measurement channels, Peak Solution has developed the Peak Advanced Search.

Peak (Test) Data Transfer Tool: Basis for implementing a central “Measurement Data Hub”

With Peak (Test) Data Transfer Tool (short: PeakDTT), Peak Solution offers a generic command line tool that convert measurement data and metadata of certain data sources into a defined data target within the scope of different processes. Currently the tool provides plugins for the following data formats: ATF, ATFx, ODS, MDF4 and ISOMME. Of course, users can add additional plugins for application-specific source and target formats at any time if required.
