Effectiveness and Impact Assessment

Effectiveness assessment is an important method from the field of systems engineering, which carries out

  • what concrete, quantitative (positive) effects
    • in which situations, scenarios and operational conditions
    • based on which systems, subsystems and components
    • with which implementation variants, configurations and parameterizations

can be achieved for complex control and automation systems.

Thus, effectiveness assessment is a primary methodology for validating of complex systems, components, and control algorithms, such as automated driving. In the form of ANDATA, it is also possible to identify which system components and activities have the most potential for functional improvements in the system development and thus have the best cost/benefit factor in terms of development costs and efforts.

ANDATA is one of the inventors of the prospective effectiveness assessment for integral automotive safety systems. Among others, the first concept variants of ANDATA's effectiveness assessment have been incorporated into openPass and P.E.A.R.S. via Automotive Safety Technologies GmbH. A generalized and extended version of the effectiveness assessment is now integrated directly in the Stipulator respectively available there via application-specific extensions.
