Main Menue on intacs.info redesigned

Dear community members,

based on feedback and suggestions from you intacs has restructured the information in the Main Menue (top left). By means of direct sub-menues we now offer clear information about what intacs is and how the scheme works, provide details specific to an assessor's perspective, and give explanation for all present working parties.

We hope that the information can now be found in a much more intuitive way.

 

Workshop Exchanging Experiences across Assessment Models

Workshop Community: SPICE Assessors - Exchanging Experiences across Assessment Models

 

Assessors from different domains (aerospace, automotive, IT services, financial standards, improvability, etc.) meet and exchange experiences about how to implement. The idea is to think about cross-fertilizing the use of these models. The SPICE Assessor workshop takes place at the EuroSPI2 Conference, 27.6.2011, 9.00 - 17.00 at the Roskilde University, Denmark.
