New Automotive SPICE PRM and PAM v2.5 available

The awaited revision of Automotoive SPICE has been released on 9th May. Both the Process Reference Model and Process Assessment Model files can be downloaded from
The following technical content changes have been made:

1. The concept of application parameters nhas been introduced (significance high):


An application parameter is a parameter containing indispensable/essential data applied to the system affecting overall system functions, behaviour or properties. The notion of application parameter is expressed in two ways: firstly, the logical specification (including name, description, unit, value domain or threshold values or characteristic curves, respectively), and, secondly, the actual quantitative data value it receives by means of data application.

Examples of application parameters are data sets to configure the set ups of power train or gear boxes.

2. Three new Base Practices now close gaps for system architectural design and software construction (significance medium):


ENG.3 New BP3: Develop verification criteria for each element of the system concerning the functional and non-functional system requirements based on the system architectural design

ENG.6 New BP2: Analyze software units in terms of interoperability, interaction, criticality, technical complexity, risks and testability

ENG.6 New BP3: Prioritize and categorize the identified and analyzed software units and map them to future releases.

3. The mapping of Base Practices and Output Work Products has been improved by  means of 13 new notes, 2 additions to existing notes, and 4
references to IEEE 829-2008 Standard for Software and System Test Documentation. (significance low (relevant for experts only))
