Dear all,

The intacs working group "HW Engineering Process" is happy to announce the 1st release of the PRM/PAM. Please pay particular attention to the Scope definition.

We are happy to receive your comments and feedback. Change Requests shall be reported to us using the intacs Ticket System. Please add the prefix "HWE PRM/PAM" to the subject of your ticket. Please also note that, in order for a change request to be processed, it must contain:

  1. a detailed problem description
  2. an elaborated argumentation why a particular rationale is false or incomplete (for almost any major decision the document provides rationales and justifications).

In October2019 we received a powerpoint file with comprehensive critique by ZF Friedrichshafen AG. This document of the working group is going to  address in 2020 for a potential of a 2nd release.

HWE SPICE PAM/PRM

Intacs is glad to announce a new Process Assessment Model for ISO20000. The model has been created by Nehfort-IT-Consulting (www.nehfort.at) and verified by intacs for compliance with the requirements of ISO 15504 Part2. Nehfort-IT-Consulting is also conducting trainings based on the new PAM.

The new PAM can be downloaded from here.

Dear community members,  

the white paper, as announced on intacs.info and in the latest intacs newsletter, has been finished.

document White Paper Spice and Agile

We would be happy if this contributes to answering frequently asked questions and to clarifying myths with respect to Process Maturity Models (such as SPICE and CMMI) vs Agile. We also hope that it will trigger fruitful discussions and further work. We are looking forward to your feedback !

In September 2009 a group of experts in Software Pro-cess Improvement (SPI) from all over the world gathered in connection with the EuroSPI Conference for a workshop at Universidad de Alcalá in Spain.

EuroSPI's mission is to develop an experience and knowledge exchange platform for Europe where SPI practices can be discussed and exchanged and knowledge can be gathered and shared.

At the workshop 15 experts presented their ‘wisdom’ grounded in many years of process improvement experience. Based on the presentations, 30 workshop participants brainstormed core values and principles specifically for process improvement. Via affinity analysis and group thinking exercises we ended up with a manifesto for SPI.

At the end of the workshop 4 values and 14 principles were identified. Among the group of participants, authoring responsibilities were distributed on a voluntary basis backed by personal justification. Some values and principles were focused on by more then one volunteer.
