The project Component Technology for Heavy Vehicles (HEAVE) is a three year project where MdH will cooperate with Volvo Construction Equipment (Eskilstuna) and CC-Systems (Uppsala/Västerås) in order to enable the use of modern Component Based Software Engineering (CBSE) techniques within the industrial segment of heavy vehicles. The project leader, Mikael Sjödin, will together with industrial PhD-students from Volvo and CC-Systems investigate the current practises and needs with respect to CBSE within the industrial segment. The next step will be to identify a suitable existing CBSE technique and if necessary propose modifications or additions to that technique. A demonstrator project using the (possibly modified) CBSE technique will be used to asses the usefulness of the technique.In HEAVE we will not only consider technical merits of any proposed CBSE technique. We will also consider how well the technique can be integrated into the development process and the possibility to gradually migrate into the proposed technique.
