Course Overview

The ISO/IEC 330xx series – called SPICE (Software Process Improvement and Capability Determination) – is the successor of ISO/IEC 15504 and thus a widely used and accepted standard for assessing and improving software engineering processes.

Worldwide and especially by the automotive industry in Germany, Automotive SPICE® has been available since 2006. It is an assessment model compliant with ISO/IEC 330xx and adapted to the needs of the automotive industry. Since 2007, Automotive SPICE® has been the yardstick for the development of software systems for automotive suppliers and a permanent feature of the OEMs’ supplier assessment.

This two-day training imparts a substantial understanding of Automotive SPICE® based on ISO/IEC 330xx.

This course is delivered in partnership with Method Park.
