SPICE

Maturity in the Global Automotive Market

Since the release of SPICE (ISO/IEC 15504) as an international standard in 2006, many engineering organizations are driving initiatives to achieve compliance on both organizational and project level. Based on ISO 12207, SPICE describes best practices and standards for primary, supporting and organizational processes for software engineering in a system context. The industry specific adoption "Automotive SPICE" is the standard for supplier assessments.

PTC Integrity is a platform to manage engineering processes and activities in one common platform, using one powerful workflow engine and a single coherent repository. It supports organizations to implement the generic practices and comply step by step with the nine process attributes that are required to move from SPICE level 1 to 5.

PTC Integrity does not force engineering organizations to adopt heavyweight process models when there is no need for this. Instead it allows to start with the most important core processes and to expand the global development process to cover the other relevant processes and generic practices achieving higher SPICE levels step by step.

Level 2

  • One single platform to manage all engineering assets throughout the software development lifecycle (work product management)
  • Full traceability between engineering assets and process items such as change requests

Level 3

  • Powerful workflow modeller and engine for business rules (process definition and deployment)
  • Multi-level relationships keep processes in sync and form one coherent process environment

Level 4

  • Metrics and Dashboards for process measurement
  • Coherent platform and workflow engine for global process control

Level 5

  • Defined feedback process on global process fosters continuous global process improvement
  • Process tailoring capabilities for projects enable project teams to comply with global process definition and still work as efficiently as possible
