Proceedings from the International Conference on Complex Systems Design & Management


Industries developing software intensive systems can gain benefits in development effort by using platforms of reusable assets, but challenges exist in effectively reusing engineering efforts. Problems can arise in requirements elicitation, establishing systematic methods around reuse, and estimations of uncertain factors in business and system usage. We present an on-going pre study to define a method to accommodate reuse of hybrid electric drive systems in multiple but similar heavy vehicle applications. We present an explorative interview study on the challenges involved, analyze the needs on a systematic approach, and provide a discussion on solutions. This on-going work shows that establishing a method to systematically reuse assets in development of complex software intensive systems may require solutions from a variety of fields, such as requirements engineering, management, and systems engineering.
