Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

Automotive SPICE® is an important automotive software standard to be implemented by OEMs and its suppliers. In addition to software, other areas such as hardware and mechanical are also important for the automotive industry. Intacs has developed a process assessment model (PAM) SPICE for Mechanical Engineering using the Plug-In concept. This two day course covers the nine mechanical engineering processes developed by Intacs including their assessment. The course will also cover a review of the Automotive SPICE® VDA scope, system requirements, the SYS.2 and MAN.3 processes.

Learning Objectives

  • Become aware of the importance of implementing mechanical engineering PAM SPICE
  • Explain the main concepts of Automotive SPICE®
  • Understand the Mechanical Engineering Plug-In Concept in Automotive SPICE®
  • Assess the mechanical engineering processes of a typical automotive project

Who Should Attend

Those involved in the design, development, and production of electrical and electronic based vehicle products, including the systems, software, hardware, and mechanical engineers, and managers. Basically, all those responsible for the development and implementation of hardware, software, and mechanical systems in motor vehicles.

Participants should be, or plan to be, actively managing, or involved in, or aware of the development of electrical and/or electronic items, mechanical systems, or elements that are incorporated in motor vehicles. Participants should also have the abilities, education, and experience required for the above roles.

Course Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies. 

Note: Omnex does not provide copies of standard(s) during training courses, but clients are encouraged to have their own copy.


Participants should be involved in or aware of software development as it relates to the vehicle industry.
