This five-day course is designed to give the attendee a detailed understanding of Automotive SPICE and methods for assessing software development processes.
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.
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.
The auditing guidelines of ISO 1901-including the audit process and methodologies, e. g., planning and conducting an audit, writing nonconformity statements, preparing an audit summary and report, and verifying corrective actions-and their application in an Automotive SPICE developmental environment will be covered. Case studies from the automotive industry to develop skills for identifying nonconformities will be used.

The seminar has been developed for professionals in system and software engineering (architects, developers, test engineers, etc.), process managers, project managers, consultants, quality managers and other participants involved with development projects of software and electronics companies in the automotive industry.
The second part of the seminar (assessment) is primarily designed for those performing assessments, but can also be valuable for Software Managers, ASPICE Implementers, Quality Assurance Managers, ASPICE Implementation and/or Transition Team Members, and all others who would like to develop competency in Automotive SPICE.
Each participant will receive a seminar manual and a breakout workbook that includes a running case study of an Automotive Software Project to illustrate an Automotive SPICE audit.
We recommend the participants have some experience in the development of complex technical systems or in process optimization. Background in developing embedded systems projects, software systems projects, 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.
