Better Processes = Better Products
Automotive SPICE (ASPICE™) Consulting
Let our team of senior consultants with global experience help you overcome your current challenges
How can we help you?
Our process assessment service consists of a disciplined and detailed evaluation of your development processes against the Automotive SPICE assessment model and its best practices.
The idea behind the assessment is to bring clarity to the current status of your development processes in your project or organization and to draw a roadmap to understand what is needed to comply with the latest standards of the industry, meet the expectations of the stakeholder, reduce risks and increase the efficiency in your development.
An assessment is usually the first step in implementing ASPICE™ in your company.
Once we know the current strength and potentials of your processes, we design a roadmap to implement ASPICE™ successfully. For this purpose, we developed a 5-phase process improvement method which enables a systemic improvement. One key factor is the definition of the interfaces between the processes and teams.
Our main focus is to drive the change to continuous and lasting process acceptance, even after the consulting project ends. Accepted processes follow easy rules. Therefore, we concentrate on agreed solutions, which are easy to understand and to follow.
We understand that the human aspect plays a significant role in the success of the project. This is the reason why we don’t limit in the technical aspects of ASPICE™; we also aim to convince and motivate the team, at all levels, within the organization.
