Dr. Bernd Hindel, CEO of Method Park spoke specifically about Automotive SPICE and it’s evolution in the upcoming months. Starting off he also spoke about autonomous driving and mentioned a the KPMG Global Automotive Executive Survey done in 2018 on who will be the automotive expert leader to translate autonomous driving in 2025. Top contenders? BMW Group with 20%, Tesla Motors at 14% and Ford Group at 6%.
When thinking about autonomous driving we have to think about the regulations. Connected car innovations require ISO26262. And what does this require? Processes. These processes are defined and improved by Automotive SPICE (ASPICE).
ASPICE defines what you have to do, as well as the results, but it’s important to remember that maturity models are not process definitions. Processes define the how, reference models such as ASPICE and CMMI define the infrastructure.
Because of this, it’s important to map your processes to your various reference models, just like you can do with Applied SAFe, and then identify the gaps to make sure that you are fully compliant.
