Overview

The world-leading automotive standard, Automotive SPICE® stands for Software Process Improvement & Capability determination and is derived from ISO 15504 (SPICE). (The ISO 15504 series has been revised by ISO and is now known as ISO 33OXX)

It is a framework developed in 2001 by the AUTOSIG (Automotive Special Interest Group - VDA) for designing and assessing software development processes. Efficiently implementing Automotive SPICE® leads to better process and product quality. The standard helps to improve cooperation among complex supply chains and between globally distributed development and engineering centers.

Automotive SPICE® is built on the V model which comes as a sequence of requirements flowing down from the System to the Hardware and Software and then testing building up as software and hardware is integrated with the sub-systems and finally into the vehicle.

Application

Automotive SPICE® is a standard tailored specifically for software developers in the automotive industry to evaluate and improve the capability and maturity of their Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) processes for mechatronic systems.

This standard is used as a reference for process evaluation and improvement. Automotive SPICE® has a Process Reference Model (PRM), Process Assessment Model (PAM), and handles work product and process dependencies. Automotive SPICE® can be used:

    Automotive SPICE® Uses
  • To derive metrics for measuring performance
  • As a guiding principle to improve and strengthen skills while developing software
  • As a gauge or point of reference for competitor analysis
  • As a best practice material for the automotive industry

Benefits

The standard is for software developers in the automotive industry to evaluate and improve the capability and maturity of their Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) processes for mechatronic systems. Compliance with ASPICE satisfies the IATF requirements for automotive product related software or automotive products with embedded software.

The results of the assessment are used for the identification of process improvements, and for identifying risks in the quality of a specific product release as well as a criterion for supplier selection. For suppliers to stay ahead in the manufacturing sector, they are to conform to Automotive SPICE® guidelines which is a prerequisite for the automotive business.
