ASPICE® Assessment with integrated Training

Synergy: Assessment – Training – Process Improvement

The Automotive SPICE® assessment of one of your projects is conducted by a very experienced Principal Assessor and intacs™ licensed trainer. ASPICE® assessors from your company participate in the assessment as co-assessors. In the consolidation phases between the interviews of the process owners, the process attributes and practices are then evaluated. The exchange within the assessment team is very valuable here.

With the neutral assessment of the processes a reliable strengths-weaknesses profile is created, so that a targeted, systematic process improvement is possible.

An assessment is a valuable experience for the project and assessment team. The interviewees get to know the typical assessment questions and assessment situation. The (co-)assessors practice the correct questioning, interpretation and evaluation.
