Challenges and Best Practices Implementing Automotive SPICE®
Software’s function in most organizations have evolved in the last twenty years, but have burgeoned in the last few years. Mechatronic and electronic systems are replacing the older mechanical systems. The move to electrical and autonomous vehicles has accelerated this change. In many cases software is not fully integrated into the business management systems of the organization. Best practice is for the business management system to also be designed for software development, not only for mechanical systems. Watch this webinar recording to understand the “Best Practices” when implementing an Automotive SPICE® based business management system using examples from our Automotive SPICE® compliant EwQIMS tool.
