Beyond this, MES, Inc. will, in cooperation with dSPACE, Inc., hold a training class on the topic of “Model-based Development of Embedded Software in Compliance with ISO 26262”. The team will celebrate the official launch of Model Engineering Solutions Inc. with an opening reception at The Iroquois Club in Bloomfield Hills, MI.
Success via Joint Leadership
“Detroit is the cradle of the American automotive industry. It is the right starting place for us to attend to existing customers and support new customers. By opening this subsidiary, we aim to offer our customers a direct, local contact partner as well as support via the shortest and quickest means possible. In Scott Ranville, we have found the perfect partner for this,” stated Dr. Heiko Dörr, CEO of MES GmbH and President of MES, Inc., regarding the objectives for opening a subsidiary in the USA.
Dr. Heiko Dörr and Scott Ranville (Vice President of MES, Inc.) will jointly lead the American subsidiary. The official launch will be marked by an opening reception for Model Engineering Solutions Inc. at The Iroquois Club in Bloomfield Hills, MI, on April 18, from 6:30 p.m.
MES, Inc. at the WCX18: SAE World Congress Experience and the CTI Conference – ISO 26262
At SAE International's WCX World Congress Experience, which runs from April 10 to 12, 2018, MES, Inc. will present the latest releases of the MES Quality Tools at booth no. 5038: MES Model Examiner v.4.6; MES M-XRAY v. 3.6; and MES Test Manager v.5.1. Alongside this, Dr. Heiko Dörr will host a presentation on “Analysis and Improvement of Model Architectures for Safety Critical Systems” on Wednesday, April 11, at 1:30 p.m.
An additional opportunity to connect with MES, Inc. will arise at the 7th International CTI Conference – ISO 26262 at the Diamond Center from May 15 to 17, 2018, in Novi, Michigan (USA). Here, attendees will also have the chance to see Dr. Heiko Dörr’s presentation on the ISO 26262 update, entitled “On the Impact of ISO 26262:2018 on Model-based Development of Safety-related Systems.”
Training Classes on Model-based Development in Compliance with ISO 26262 at dSPACE, Inc.
MES will host a training class on the topic “Model-based Development of Automotive Embedded Software in Compliance with ISO 26262” on April 16 and 17 together with long-term partner dSPACE, Inc. This effective training class recently impressed new customer Nicholas Broyles of Bendix:
“The training class provided exactly the overview I wanted for my team on the ISO 26262 process and the best practices for integrating model-based development into that process. The focus on model-based SW development allowed my engineers to remain engaged, while the functional safety discussions provided the context for the additional rigor required. The hands-on tools and analysis sessions demonstrated state-of-the-art quality assurance tools to help create efficient models that meet safety validation requirements.”
Further training classes in cooperation with dSPACE, Inc.:
June 26 - 27, 2018 Wixom, Michigan (USA)
September 27 - 28, 2018 Naperville, Illinois (USA)
