WHAT WE DO - AND WHY
FEV Consulting is the FEV Group's technology-driven top management consultancy. We act as a guide between strategy development and product realization in today's global environment. We do not simply work for companies, but for our customers - people who want to move society forward. That's why we develop and optimize technical product concepts with our focus on customer benefit, feasibility, sustainability and profitability.
Work together with us on challenging projects from different areas of the mobility, transportation and energy sectors.
Sample topics include: sustainable vehicle and mobility concepts, business transformations to maintain future viability, coupling the energy and transportation sectors, digital services, and business development for innovation.
The automotive industry is undergoing a significant transformation putting software to the core of vehicle feature development. Software development is already mastered in many areas of consumer electronics (e.g., smartphones, laptops), but the majority of automotive manufacturers is lagging behind. The mostly historically grown architectures and complex control structures are not state-of-the-art.
One key enabler to develop software in a structured way are service-oriented architectures - a principle well established in modern consumer electronics development, but only adapted in automotive to a very small extend. Since the complexity and security aspect of modern car controls is very high, service-oriented architectures are indispensable for the future, but at the same time difficult to develop in the first step.
Potential research question: "To which extend are service-oriented architectures required in modern vehicles, what can be learned from other industries (i.e., consumer electronics) and what are the implementation challenges for automotive OEMs."
