Experiences with ASPICE 3.1 and the VDA Automotive SPICE Guidelines – Using Advanced Assessment Systems

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 1060)

Abstract

When applying the Automotive SPICE 3.1 assessment model the VDA Automotive SPICE Guidelines need to be considered. This has an impact on the assessment planning, the interpretation of base practices and generic practices and the assessment reporting. The VDA Automotive SPICE Guidelines (blue-gold book [2]) contain rules and recommendations to interpret ASPICE 3.1 and also consider dependencies in the ratings. Assessors are now confronted with hundreds of additional rules and recommendations. The paper outlines from first experiences about how to handle this additional effort.
