The ECSEL-project AMASS created and consolidated the de-facto European-wide open tool platform, ecosystem, and self-sustainable community for assurance and certification of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the largest industrial vertical markets including automotive, railway, aerospace, space, and energy.

The goal of AMASS (Architecture-driven, Multi-concern and Seamless Assurance and Certification of Cyber-Physical Systems) is to lower certification costs for CPS in face of rapidly changing features and market needs. This was achieved by establishing a novel holistic and reuse-oriented approach for architecture-driven assurance (fully compatible with standards such as AUTOSAR and IMA), multi-concern assurance (for co-analysis and co-assurance of e.g. security and safety aspects), and for seamless interoperability between assurance and engineering activities along with third-party activities (e.g. external assessments and supplier assurance). Up to 40% cost reductions for component/product (re)certification/qualification activities and raise of technology innovation led by 35% reduction of assurance and certification risks of new CPS products, could be achieved.
