ADD – Automotive Data Dictionary
ADD represents a global data dictionary for all ECU labels/variables used in a company/organisation. The single source concept of ADD eases the handling and management of data declarations over all projects.
Due to the (company-wide) availability and uniqueness of these labels, ADD allows a continuous and consistent data declaration during the whole development process.
Single Source & Continuous Data Flow
Main objective is to centralize all data elements/definitions and to support the reuse of the data for the function development part as well as to the software development.
This means that everyone is able to select a data definition from a single source, where the data is stored unique, project- as well as editor- independent. Thus it is ensured, that the data definitions are equal in the whole development process.
ADD avoids redundancy of data due to company wide availability and uniqueness of these data.
