Inalfa Roof Systems designs, develops and manufactures sunroofs and open-roof systems for the automotive industry. We are a First Tier supplier for BMW Group, Daimler, Chrysler Group, Ford, General Motors, Volkswagen, Audi, Volvo, Citroën, Chery, Geely, Hyundai Kia, Land Rover, Renault, Nissan and many others. Inalfa Roof Systems Group is headquartered in Venray (Limburg, close Venlo and the German border with Koln and Dusseldorf in the area), The Netherlands, and we have a global footprint with facilities in Europe, Asia and the America’s.

Global Sales Excellence (GSE) provides tools and processes for the sales organization of Inalfa, enabling the sales teams to focus on customers and to work in an efficient and value adding way. One of the core tasks of GSE is market analysis, customer and competitor analysis and sales strategy setting. A previous iteration of the Competitive Intelligence process was started as an initiative within Sales in 2014 and was running with medium effect until 2016. Due to other strategic priorities in the organization it was not followed up since 2016 anymore.

Currently, the GSE function is being reinforced and this enables us to start up Competitive Intelligence again. To help us build our competitive advantage we are looking for a motivated student, ready to take on the task.

The Software development team within Inalfa creates software requirements based on experience from experts and adjusts them based on reviews with stakeholders or after defects find in a released software version.

The requirements engineering team would benefit from a Rapid Control Prototyping environment to support alignment on desired functionality. Setting up an RCP environment to develop and demonstrate functionality with SIL and HIL techniques for support helps discussing and alignment before going into the software development process.

To showcase the roof system features a set of dedicated automotive tools are available like Vector CANoe and Matlab Simulink. These tools allow the assignee to learn about Vehicle Diagnostics and state-of-the-art Automotive Software development techniques.

Where needed more conceptual devices like HANtune, Arduino or Raspberry Pi can be used or acquired to achieve the final goal. A well-equipped development lab is available to explore all possible ideas.

Practical tasks will contain but are not limited to:

  • Building a roof system frame with prototype building materials;
  • Integrating force and positions sensors;
  • Mounting disturbance actuators on the roof system;
  • Visualize measurement with a graphical display.

    The project will be managed within the software development team where experience is gained with fully integrated IBM solutions for project, requirement and quality management:
