F+S Fleckner und Simon Informationstechnik GmbH has been successful in the technical software industry for many years. We work primarily with suppliers to the automobile industry in all aspects of software development.
We have three areas of expertise that improve and promote each other and enable us to have a balanced view of our projects.
- Development: Software development and technical management
- Consulting: Process improvement, functional safety, security, quality control, and management support
- Tools: Selection, configuration and development of tools
F+S has many years of experience with all of the processes that are required for the development of low-level and technical software. In addition to the coding, this includes requirements analysis, design, and tests at all levels. Our team works meticulously and thinks outside of the box. That is why our customers often ask us for help with their most complex and challenging tasks, in particular with the creation and implementation of safety concepts.
Standard ISO 15504 (also known as SPICE) and the safety standard ISO 26262 (Functional Safety – Road Vehicles) play a central role in consulting.
More recently we have had many opportunities to touch on Security related aspects in which we could help our customers based on our experience in the automotive and other industries.
Our consultants provide hand-on expertise and practical knowledge gained from feedback from F+S colleagues who often also work as developers in customer projects. Assessments by the automobile manufacturers also confirm F+S’s proposed approaches. At the SPICE assessor meetings, our consultants were recognized for their particularly pragmatic and efficient solutions.
The right tools help to put defined development processes into practice. Relieving all involved of manual tasks increases productivity and acceptance. F+S can help you to choose standard tools and configure them too. If the need arises, we also develop customized adjustments, interfaces, enhancements, or completely new tools and endeavor to make everything as user friendly as possible and ensure the qualification for safety-relevant tasks.
All our employees have the theoretical background needed for their work, but it is not the theoretical approach that counts - finding practical solutions to problems is the main goal. Their great work has allowed the company to grow continuously since its founding in the year 2000, but not so fast as to affect the high quality standards we hold ourselves to. The company has a healthy mix of employees with years of experience and young employees who bring in new methods and ideas.
F+S’s customers especially value the pragmatic solutions, the painstaking work, and our reliability once we have committed to a project. Thanks to the high quality of our services, Volkswagen recommends F+S GmbH as a partner for process improvements and we are a Continental preferred supplier.
