Course Duration: 2 Days

This three-day course is designed to give the attendee a detailed understanding of writing Effective Requirements and Test Cases through process workshops focused on the system, software and hardware process groups.

The course combines best practices from Automotive SPICE® 3.1 PRM/PAM and HWE PRM/PAM.

·      Detailed understanding of what Automotive SPICE® is and the motivation behind the model

·      Detailed understanding of process capability level 1 (VDA-Scope)

·      Detailed understanding of traceability requirements

·      Detailed understanding of creating requirements for software and its elements at various levels

·      Understanding of how to evaluate process risks and drive process improvements

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.
