Training ASPICE Primer

ASPICE is mandatory in automotive industry and a minimum understanding is expected from management and engineering. Often engineers and managers as well as quality experts ask about how to position the ASPICE framework and what are expectations of OEMs. Is it more than only an audit, and how to use it for actual improvements? This Automotive SPICE (ASPICE) primer is the answer.

This one-day primer is hands-on with focus on practical ASPICE usage.  It motivates ASPICE based on OEM expectations and shows how processes and base practices are defined and improved. The basic structure of ASPICE is introduced and how it is used to improve processes and to assess process maturity. ASPICE usage is exemplified with brief case studies and best practice benchmarks. A focus is on practical experiences in how OEMs interpret the framework, and what they demand from suppliers. This Primer is an intense compact version of our 2-day ASPICE training.
