Creation of a process model “Agile SPICE®” to reflect agile concepts, methods and practices, but only with either changed or added processes and process groups


  • Growing complexity and faster changes during development drive increased use of agile approaches.
  • OEMs ensure the overall quality and safety/security of those products, leading to increased pressure to show Automotive SPICE® capabilities.
  • Automotive SPICE® as is can be applied and interpreted for any kind of development.
  • However, both agile organizations and those in an agile transition struggle in implementing and interpreting Automotive SPICE®.
  • There is a need to reduce misunderstandings and help to interpret the terminology for both sides.
  • This bridge shall …
    • reduce the variation in interpretation of Automotive SPICE® assessors,
    • increase the acceptance of Automotive SPICE® in the agile community.


  • Development of an Agile SPICE® PAM (applicable with Automotive SPICE® 3.1) including usage guidance and mapping to Automotive SPICE® practices
  • Piloting the Agile SPICE® PAM in assessments
  • Creation of standard training material and exams
