The seminar has been developed for:

  • Developers, test engineers, project managers, software quality engineers and managers & other participants involved with development of embedded systems in the automotive industry.
  • Hardware designers, test engineers, project managers, hardware quality engineers and managers & other participants involved with development of embedded systems in the automotive industry.
  • Software and Hardware managers, Automotive SPICE® Implementers, internal auditors and others who need to understand Automotive SPICE® and how to integrate it into their Quality Management or Functional Safety system will find the training helpful. 

Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies. 

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.
