Automotive SPICE

Reading Time: 4 minutes Automotive SPiCE is a process maturity framework to assess the capability and maturity of organisational processes to develop software resp. embedded systems in the automotive industry. It is a variant of ISO 15504 tailored to the needs of the automotive industry. The framework is used by automotive OEMs and suppliers to assess the capability and maturity of their development processes for software and embedded systems. The process reference part of the model defines the central processes relevant to be inspected and to be performed in any software/embedded system development. The process assessment part of the model describes how to evaluate the capability of processes within the organisation.

ISO/IEC 15504 — SPiCE

Reading Time: 5 minutes ISO/IEC 15504 (SPiCE) is an international norm to assess and evaluate the maturity of business processes for software and electronic development (embedded systems). A process reference model defines the central processes relevant to be inspected and to be performed in any software/embedded system development. The process assessment model defines how to evaluate the capability of processes within an organisation.

Maturity and Capability — What is it?

Reading Time: 4 minutes Process maturity means that whatever an organisation is doing, it is done in a well-documented way, and everyone knows what is expected of them and performs accordingly.
A process is capable if it satisfies its specified product quality, service quality, and process performance objectives. A capable process consistently produces output that is within specifications. Execution of capable process always gives predictable results.
Process maturity levels classify organisations according to their ability to control their various processes. Process capability levels classify the performances of (some) processes of a certain process area done by an organisation, organisational department, or project. Process maturity models define reference and assessment schemes for maturity resp. capability levels in detail.

Process Reference Model — What is it?

Reading Time: 1 minute A Process Reference Model describes for a certain application domain a set of processes. Each process is described by its purpose and the associated process outcomes (i.e. work products). Process Reference Models are always related to a Process Assessment Model.

Process Institutionalisation — What is it?

Reading Time: 2 minutes Institutionalisation is an important concept in process improvement. When mentioned in the generic goal and generic practice descriptions, institutionalization implies that the process is ingrained in the way the work is performed and there is a company-wide commitment and consistency to performing the process.

Process Assessment Model — What is it?

Reading Time: 1 minute A Process Assessment Model (PAM) relates to one or more Process Reference Models. A PAM holds all details (so called indicators) to determine process maturity. It is aligned in two dimensions: Process and Maturity level.
