Understanding Automotive SPICE

Seminar Content

This three-day course is designed to give the attendee a detailed understanding of Automotive SPICE.

The Automotive SPICE Process Assessment Model is used to perform conformant assessments of the software process capability in the development of automotive systems in accordance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 33002.

The results of assessment are used for the identification of process improvements, and for identifying risks in the quality of a specific product release as well as a criterion for supplier selection.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to apply the evaluation methods used in Automotive SPICE to assess and improve your company’s processes. Methods to integrate Automotive SPICE with both ISO 26262 (Functional Safety) and IATF 16949 (Automotive Quality Management Systems)
will be covered in class.

Who Should Attend

The seminar has been developed for developers, test engineers, project managers and other participants involved with “Development Projects” in the automotive industry.

Software managers, ASPICE Implementers, internal auditors and others need to understand ASPICE and how to integrate it into their Quality Management or Functional Safety system will find the training helpful.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

Background in “development projects”, “software development”, “quality management systems”, or “functional safety” will be helpful.

A basic understanding of project management, quality management and system and software engineering processes is helpful, but not required.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies.
