AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) is an open and standardized automotive software architecture, jointly developed by automobile manufacturers, suppliers and tool developers. Its design is a direct consequence of the increasingly important role software plays in vehicles. As design choices during the software deployment phase may have a large impact on the real-time properties of the system, designers need a method to explore various trade-offs. In this paper we evaluate the appropriateness of DEVS, the Discrete-Event system Specification, for modelling and subsequent performance evaluation of AUTOSAR-based systems. We demonstrate and validate our work by means of a power window and ABS case study.
