THE LEADER IN FUTURE
AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE INDUSTRY
PROJECTS & STAFFING
We accompany you from project planning through project control to the independent realization of partial or complete projects. We have experts in all areas to support you in the regular production process or in campaigns and new projects worldwide.
Whether hardware and software, high-voltage components, seating and interieur or classic sheet metal, surface and mechanics - we are specialists in quality management and have experts in all areas to support you during the production process or with campaigns and new projects worldwide.
The perfect function and appearance of all vehicle components is absolutely relevant to the customer. We conduct testing of software, electronic functions and mechanical components as well as the assessment of material quality and surface finishes for you.
Safety-related functions in vehicles require a high level of reliability. At the same time, with the complexity of electronic and programmable systems, the possibility of errors increases. To avoid systematic errors, we test safety-relevant systems for you, analyze specification and implementation errors as well as random errors.
In new projects management, it is important to present the subsequent series process as transparently as possible and to plan it reliably in advance. Our experts work with you to develop strategies for error prevention (Advanced Product Quality Planning, APQP) and advanced quality planning (QVP). We will also be happy to support you with quantity-related test runs such as run @ rate / 2-day production.
Exact adherence to the dimensions of components, the body and the entire vehicle is an essential aspect of quality management. We support this requirement with our own 3D measuring technology (e.g. measuring arm) or measuring equipment provided by our customers. In addition, our specialists take on the programming of 3D measuring machines and measuring systems.
Quality begins with the purchased parts. That is why quality management is as important to the suppliers as it is to the manufacturer itself. We know the requirements and provide support in supplier development and supplier auditing. We carry out process approvals and run @ rate / 2-day test runs on your behalf on site.
Audits are an integral part of the QM system - either because they are prescribed or because you want to ensure certain standards and exclude systematic errors along the entire process chain from the supplier through production to delivery. We take on process audits and supplier audits on your behalf, both internally and externally.
Product development and product optimization are ongoing processes from research and pre-development through concept studies and design drafts to series development and series support.
- Research and pre-development: Development and implementation of technologies for product or production process and production-related applications.
- Concept and design: Development of studies, drafts and concepts, creation of specifications for internal departments, service providers and suppliers, definition of specifications for risk management, change management and requirements management.
- Series development: construction of parts and systems, calculation and simulation up to readiness for use, integration and application of new technologies and processes, prototyping as well as homologation and certification.
- Series support: Development of product and process optimizations through design changes or updates, rollout support of derivatives and product upgrades as part of model updates.
Every partial or large project requires well-planned, goal-oriented management. We accompany you from project planning and project control to the independent realization of partial or complete projects - also within the framework of launch management.
In launch management, it is important to control all start-up activities from the construction of the first prototype to the start of production (SOP). This accompanying and forward-looking process ensures the smoothest possible transition from completed product development to reaching the planned daily production volume while maintaining the required quality. We are happy to provide you with our many years of experience from many product launches.
A wide range of hardware and software components are embedded in modern vehicles, which regulate, control or monitor a wide range of physical functions. Our specialists support you with development needs in the hardware and software environment. As resident engineers, they can act as an interface between the development department and production if required. In requirements engineering, we define, document and manage your requirements in the design process, take care of the integration of systems and eliminate systematic sources of error using tests and experimental arrangements.
Conventional drives with combustion engines and the associated components will determine our mobility for a few years to come. That is why we are also expanding our know-how in these areas. We continue to offer you our experience in the development of engine components, parts as well as units and turbochargers. We are also happy to provide support in the areas of testing and calculation, Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) as well as testing and test drives.
The concept of sustainability and the associated legal requirements accelerate the development of alternative drives, energy sources and storage media. We are your partner for the development of new mobility solutions with regard to hydrogen, hybrid and battery-electric drives as well as new solutions for the charging infrastructure. During trials and test drives, we check them for their practicability and reliability.
Special requirements apply to the software of alternative drives, for example to the energy management systems but also the integration of functions of autonomous driving. Our developers provide support in these areas, among others:
- Development of software solutions for battery management systems or charging solutions
- Development and implementation of the software architecture
- System integration
- Development and programming in the field of autonomous driving
- Flashing of control units
The demands on competences in vehicle development are shifting towards software and hardware know-how. Our hardware specialists are already experienced from a wide range of projects in the development of battery packs, electrical machines and high-voltage components such as converters and chargers. We also offer you additional hardware know-how in the areas of packaging, basic development, carrying out technical calculations or developments in the field of fuel cells.
E-mobility components require specific test and inspection procedures. We offer you a wide range of electronic, mechanical, climatic and corrosive tests - for example, environmental simulations according to LV124, the testing of high-voltage components according to LV123 and endurance tests according to your specifications.
Safety-related functions in vehicles require a high level of reliability. At the same time, with the complexity of electronic and programmable systems, the possibility of errors increases. Our FUSi experts support you in the field of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in accordance with DIN ISO 26262. Functional safety is also an essential aspect of quality management and embedded engineering at BUTSCH.
Hardware and software systems must be protected from external attacks. Damage to these systems usually entails immense economic damage and often also legal consequences. We support:
- Creation and development of cybersecurity concepts at vehicle level according to ISO 21434, SAEJ3061 or IEC 62443
- Implementation and evaluation of the security analysis
- Carrying out security audits & assessments
- Development of security validation plans according to ISO 21434 and / or UNECE standards
