2014-11-26-Gate4SPICE Event "Alignment of General Practice (GP) interpretation"

Geschrieben von Admin WG Assessor Info am Montag, 06. Oktober 2014 18:04.

Brief description:

The purpose of the Automotive SPICE standard is to evaluate the capability of development processes in the automotive industry. While using standards like Automotive SPICE - which are reflecting capability models - it is essential to have a common understanding of its requirements.

The practical experience of assessment teams and projects being assessed showed that a common understanding of the requirements of ASPICE is not always given.

Especially some Generic Practices on capability level 2 often suffer from diversity in interpretation often. Different expectation of the evidence, their judgment and delimitation to base practices can lead to inconsistent assessment findings and results with a wide range in the rating. 

Within this Gate4SPICE Meeting we want to come closer to an aligned understanding of the generic practices on capability level 2 – in addition to the training concept of Automotive SPICE. Exchanging different experiences and points of view will help to create a common sense here and will intensify constructive interpretation in the future. This will give the assessed entities more certainty that they choose the right corrective actions out of an assessment.

This workshop will be held in German.
