_SPICE Models

This area organizes spice compliant PRM and PAM

Nach langer Arbeit ist - ein Jahr später als geplant- Die Version 4.0 von TestSPICE endlich freigegeben.

Wesentliche Neuerungen:

Komplette Abdeckung von ISO/IEC 29119

Vollständige Skalierbarkeit von Assessments durch neue Prozessarchitektur

Komplettierung der Agile Extention

Here you can download the complate PAM: TestSPICE V4.0

Was kommt als nächstes:

Ein neues Zertifizierungsschema für TestSPICE Assessoren,

Ein neues Training für TestSPICE Provisional und Competent Assessoren.

Für die TestSPICE SIG

We present intacs SPICE for Mechanical Engineering - now with a Japanese translation.

The Japanese translation of ME SPICE shows the worldwide interest in this guideline.

SPICE for Mechanical Engineering Release 1.7-Japanese

Please let us know your feedback.

As an intacs working group we are currently trying to answer the growing demand of agile teams on how to implement AutomotiveSPICE(r) in an agile environment. We started to bridge MAN.3 by creating practices for Agile Work Management. Get a sneak preview on the base practices and participate in the workgroup!

We present the new version of intacs SPICE for Mechanical Engineering.

Please let us know your feedback.

New intacs SPICE for Mechanical Engineering Release 1.7

and: with Annotations

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).
  3. a consistend change proposal.

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.




SPICE for Mechanical Engineering

The Process Assessment Model SPICE for Mechanical Engineering Version 1.7 is available for public review and usage.

SPICE Mechanical Engineering Release 1.7 and with Annotations can be downloaded by any registered user.

Any comments and hints are welcome. Please use the Ticket System.

The mechanical engineering processes define a process set for the development of pure mechanical systems (e.g. steering columns) and mechanical components (e.g. screws). These are linked to Automotive SPICE according to the Plug-In Concept defined in Automotive SPICE v3.1.
Interfaces to the following processes are covered:

  • Mechatronic processes (SYS.X)
  • Production
  • Test environment development

The entire development of production processes is not covered.
Management and supporting processes as well as generic practices of Automotive SPICE shall be used as defined in the Automotive SPICE PAM v3.0 but have to be adapted to a mechanical context.

This process model was created by the intacs working group SPICE for Mechanical Development whose work was only made possible by the kind contribution of the following companies and particularly their employees involved.

  • Brose Fahrzeugteile GmbH & Co. KG
  • Conti Temic microelectronic GmbH
  • F+S Fleckner und Simon Informationstechnik GmbH
  • Hilti AG
  • Mando Corporation Europe GmbH
  • Robert Bosch GmbH
  • ZF Friedrichshafen AG

The members of the working group would especially thank all the reviewers of the standard whose valuable input helped to increase the quality of the model for its initial release.
