For most features in the automotive domain, the realized functionality is spread over several Electronic Control Units (ECUs) provided by a number of suppliers. To develop such a feature a close cooperation between suppliers and the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM, e. g. Ford) is necessary. During product development, the involved suppliers and the OEM have to create a large set of aligned artefacts, consisting of textual documents (e. g. specifications, test plans), requirements (e. g. in a requirement management tool), models, source code etc. To improve readability, we will use the term “documents” in this paper. Note that this includes all types of artefacts as mentioned above.
