Mechanical SPICE® Plug-in for Automotive SPICE®

Course Duration: 2 Days

Automotive SPICE® is an automotive software process model implemented by OEMs and its suppliers. In addition to software, other areas such as hardware and mechanical are also important for the automotive industry considering mechatronic development. In order to address this, intacsTM has developed a Process Assessment Model (PAM) SPICE® for Mechanical Engineering which can be assessed along with Automotive SPICE® using the Plug-in concept.

This two-day course covers the nine mechanical engineering processes developed by intacsTM. This course will also provide an overview of the Automotive SPICE® Management and Support processes that facilitate implementation of the Mechanical SPICE® processes.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the main concepts of Automotive SPICE® and its relationship with Mechanical Engineering PAM
  • Understand the Mechanical Engineering PAM for System and Component level mechanical processes
