Automotive SPICE® Software Development and Software Testing

Course Duration: 2 Days

This two-day course is provided to give the attendee a detailed understanding of Automotive SPICE® software processes.

The Automotive SPICE® Process Assessment Model is used to perform conformance 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 define the Automotive SPICE® software processes in detail and integrate Automotive SPICE® with both ISO 26262 (Functional Safety) and IATF 16949 (Automotive Quality Management Systems.
