Brief description

Omnex invites you to an Online Gate4SPICE event on November 2nd 2021.

Companies implementing ISO 26262 Functional Safety, ISO 21448 SOTIF and ISO 21434 Cybersecurity will need to leverage ASPICE in their respective implementations. ASPICE is often seen as a standard for “Embedded Software”, and that is indeed true, but important to note that ASPICE includes Software processes, System Processes and so on. 9 out of 16 processes in what is known as the “VDA scope” is in the current Automotive QMS IATF 16949 standard. ASPICE forms the basis for the implementation of Functional Safety, ASPICE, and SOTIF in the Systems and Software areas. In fact, most of the processes in ASPICE are already present in both Functional Safety and Cybersecurity Standards.

How should organizations best leverage ASPICE? Join us for the Gate4Spice event to find out more. Please note, attendees are eligible for EE-AC or -EP certification (Experience Evidence Active-Contribution (for Speakers) and External Passive (for attendees) ) through participation.
