Developing vehicles is a complex process in which the system engineering and virtual development (simulation) departments, both at OEMs and at suppliers, must work closely together. Both departments require digital representations (models) of components and systems in order to ensure that information can be exchanged. These models in turn require functional data as input for parameterization.
The objective of prostep ivip's FDX project group is to define a standard format for the exchange of data for different component groups between OEMs and suppliers and among suppliers themselves.
In 2020, work on version 1.1 of the FDX standard, parts 1 and 2, was completed and published at the end of 2020. Part 1 of the standard contains a technical description and the dependencies of the relevant objects. A description of the attributes required to exchange functional data exchange was created in part 2.
The project was presented during the prostep ivip Symposium.
It is now possible for software service providers to implement solutions that meet the FDX standard based on the standard made available this year. Interest among software service providers was aroused during an introduction to the standard.
Publication of detailed attribute descriptions for a variety of different assemblies as a supplement to the standard is planned for 2021. These descriptions will be included in the FDX standard as parts 3.x. In order to give dissemination of the standard a boost, it is planned that an implementor forum be established and that the above-mentioned presentation be given again in 2121.
