2013-12-06: Gate4 SPICE Event "SPICE for mechanical systems/components"

Hilti invited to the G4S Event “SPICE for mechanical systems/components” to Liechtenstein on December 6th, 2013.

ASPICE has proven to be very successful to guide the engineering processes in the automotive area for SW and system development. Why not transfer these ideas and principles to other areas of engineering, like electronic hardware or mechanics development! This event focusses on mechanics:

  • Presentation of performed assessments and process improvement activities
  • Workshops on
    • Which processes and base practices are needed for development of mechanical systems/components?
    • How could existing ASPICE processes and base practices be adapted for mechanical development?
    • Which new processes and new base practices must be developed?

2013-10-21-22: Gate4 SPICE Event "Mastering increasing SW Complexity in Systems”

Again, Volkswagen invited to discuss the following questions in the MMI Braunschweig from 10/21/13 to 10/22/13

  • What are the challenges we face in terms of increasing software complexity and which strategies or approaches can we find to overcome the complexity in practice?
  • Do the current procedures and methods give sufficiently answers thereto or do we need new answers?

2013-09-17: Gate4 SPICE Event "SPICE and AGILE”

Few topics are discussed in the community as intensively as the topic mentioned above. Both approaches, SPICE - oriented and agile, have their followers and have been used successfully, but "agile" is the new, positive word. How can you integrate agile approaches in SPICE?

2013-06-04: Gate4 SPICE Event "Checking 3rd Party Software in Automotive SPICE Assessments”

How to ensure with Automotive SPICE assessments that all 3rd party software is correctly integrated into the project, including legal, functional and technical aspects. The application of the process ACQ.4 alone is not sufficient.


2013-04-15: Gate4SPICE Event "SPICE and functional Safety"

In this workshop, different approaches to the process of harmonization of ISO 26262 requirements with SPICE requirements were presented by the respective representatives.
This gave the participants a direct comparison. Several small groups of participants discussed more deeply similarities and differences and applicability of all approaches.


2013-03-07 Gate4SPICE Event “SPICE Assessment for Beginners”

Provisional SPICE assessors mostly completed their training recently and have little or no assessment experience. The aim of this Gate4SPICE workshop was to help them in their first steps in assessment practice. Based on an extensive case study, the participants assessed the Change Request Management process (SUP.10) of the Automotive SPICE ® assessment model and discussed the results. The feedback of participants was so positive that we will continue this kind of workshop. The results of the workshop are accessible on the Gate4SPICE Result page.


2013-01-15: Trends in Assessment model

„Die aktuelle Entwicklung der SPICE Assessmentmodelle“ mit Entwicklung der PAMs in den letzten Jahren und Vorstellung der Modelle. Die Botschaft ist: SPICE ist „best practice“ im Prozessmanagement!"

2012-10-30/31: Entwicklungsbegleitende Software- Qualitätssicherung ein "Feigenblatt" oder Sicherung der Software-Qualität?

Wie die Praxis zeigt, gehen die Meinungen über die Art und Weise als auch über den Umfang einer angemessenen SW-Qualitätssicherung relativ weit auseinander.
Brauchen wir SW-Qualitätssicherung oder stört sie nur und wie groß sollte der Umfang der SW-QS sein?
Solche und weitere aufschlussreiche Fragen haben sich die Teilnehmer gestellt und diskutiert. Ziel hierbei wares, ein gemeinsames Verständnis der entwicklungsbegleitenden SW-Qualitätssicherung mit den Teilnehmern zu erarbeiten.


2012-09-19: Gate4SPICE Event - Identifikation von offenen Themen / Bedarfen rund um das Thema Software-Qualität/SPICE, Veranstalter: BMW

Dieser Workshop behandelt den Nutzen, den SPICE für die Software-Qualität in den letzen 10 Jahren aus der Sicht von BMW gebracht hat und sammelt Themen, die für die SPICE -Community in der Zukunft interessant sind. Workshops beschäftigen sich mit der Sammlung und der Klassifizierung dieser Themen.


2012-06-25: 19th EuroSPI Conference, BENA Business Base Nineteen, Vienna, Austria, 25.-27.06.2012

Workshop 2012 (in Cooperation with Gate4SPICE meetings organised by iNTACS) The workshop focused on two experience topics, which require a consolidated view and experience exchange across assessors.
Workshop Theme 1 - Tailoring in Small and Legacy Projects
Many times in assessments we are confronted with tailoring of processes. How do we accept such tailorings in assessments and under which conditions can this become a sophisticated decision for the assessor to make the right rating?
Workshop Theme 2 – Agile and Maturity Models
Also to a growing extent there are agile development processes used. How does SPICE support agile processes with the improvement planning and what guidance could be established for assessors?

2011-11-24: G4S-Event in Wolfsburg: Assessors in between OEMs and supplier

Der Bereich der Konzern Software-Qualitätssicherung der VW AG (K-GQK/4) initiierte diese Veranstaltung, um bestimmte Themen hinsichtlich Durchführung, Bewertung und Interpretation von Assessments zu erörtern. Im Vordergrund wurden die Gründe und Motive - und letztlich die daraus folgenden Konsequenzen - unterschiedlicher Assessment-Ergebnisse dargestellt. Das Ziel des Tages war es, die größten Abweichungen bzw. Diskrepanzen zu kennen und mögliche einheitliche Lösungsansätze/Interpretationshilfen hierfür vorzustellen und zu diskutieren.


2011-10-20: G4S-Event in München: ENG.2 Level 3

Am 20.10.2010 fand nach längerer Pause einmal wieder eine Gate4SPICE Veranstaltung statt. Der Gastgeber Tieto Deutschland GmbH, München, sorgte mit Räumen, Speisen und Getränken für eine perfekte Arbeitsumgebung. Thema war SPICE Level 3 am Beispiel des Prozesses ENG.2.
Der erste Teil des Tages war einführenden Präsentationen gewidmet, die allen Teilnehmern die Inhalte von SPICE Level 3 wieder präsent machten.
Im zweiten Teil des Tages wurden in zwei Arbeitsgruppen für jede der Generic Practices des Levels 3 erarbeitet, welche „Evidence“ ein Assessor für die Vergabe der Bewertungen von „Fully“ über „Largely“ bis „Partially“ erwartet.

New Organisational Framework for Gate4SPICE

The qualification of all assessors especially regarding their common understanding of the Automotive SPICE norm is a major goal of iNTACS. For several years this goal was supported by the Gate4SPICE board, which held regular meetings for the SPICE community. For the last year nearly no Gate4SPICE activities have been visible. So the iNTACS Executive Board decided to make a new initiative regarding the assessor community. Peter Bölter declared the provision of added value for iNTACS certified assessors as a major goal for 2011.
As a consequence, the Working Group “Assessor Support” was founded and Dr. Joachim Fleckner was appointed to be the leader of this Working Group.
