The Challenge

A European company that designs air suspension and steering systems for the automotive industry lacked in-house software development expertise and trusted Oxford Global Resources to help. This client faced a tight project deadline from a European OEM.

To show any discrepancies or issues with the actuators and sensors in the air suspension system, a safety monitor needed to be developed. The software had to meet ISO 26262 and ASIL B requirements.

The client did not have sufficient Software, Functional Safety or in-house MISRA compliance knowledge to perform the tasks and meet the tight six-month project delivery deadlines.  Without Oxford’s assistance, the project deadlines would not have been met.

The Solution

Oxford reached out to the client offering our services and expertise. The client did not have a history of using contractors. However, due to their tight deadlines and Oxford’s ability to source the necessary expertise, the client agreed to partner with us.

Within 48 hours, Oxford provided a senior-level Software Development Engineer with extensive automotive experience and the client selected the candidate after a short interview. Upon completion of the initial contract period, the client extended the working relationship until all project deadlines were met.

The Result

Due to the quick reaction, quality of candidate, and regular communication with the client, the project was completed by the six-month deadline. Aside from successfully completing his own tasks, the consultant was able to guide and mentor the client’s internal team. By project-end, the consultant completed a successful technical handover.

The client confirmed they would be happy to work with the consultant again on future projects and were impressed with Oxford’s ability to source The Right Talent. Right Now.

Quality. Commitment.
