In automotive E/E development, you encounter numerous – even diverging – expectations, requirements, regulations, standards and activities: e.g. project management, configuration management, Automotive SPICE®, functional safety, cybersecurity, and SOTIF. We integrate all these activities across your product lifecycle, taking into account their perspectives. With 'Automotive integrated Development', you dispose of a blueprint of an integrated E/E development.
Need support with a key project? We’re your first port of call when it comes to management consulting and improvement programmes in electronics development.

Automotive SPICE® has become the de facto industry standard for developing automotive electronics. By using this reference model you can systematically improve your processes and assess the status of your projects. To develop mechatronic systems on an integrated basis, there are also extensions for these domains.
To shield connected vehicles from external attacks and protect vehicle infrastructures, you need to install end-to-end safeguards that address all factors with a bearing on vehicle cybersecurity: the product itself, processes and IT systems.
Applying the principles of functional safety allows you to avoid malfunctions occurring in electronic systems that might have a bearing on vehicle safety and present a hazard to people. ISO 26262:2018 is the recognised method for doing this.
Agility refers to the ability of a company to adapt to changing parameters in such a way that it is always ready to react if there is a change in customer requirements. We help you become agile, step by step.
CMMI® is an established reference model, offering you a structured approach that is not just useful when enhancing and controlling how you develop or procure software, but also when improving and managing hardware, mechatronic systems and services.
In our interview with Christian Hertneck, you will learn how to take advantage of the blueprint for an integrated development lifecycle to ensure transparency and always perform the required activities at the right time.
To improve software quality, we support Volkswagen with process improvements in its supply base.
Numerous process specialists at Kugler Maag Cie are now official Volkswagen-certified Software Quality Leaders (SQIL). This allows them to support suppliers to VW as independent advisors on process improvements.

To lay a foundation for your decision-making, we assess how well positioned you are with respect to a variety of key questions. To do this, we offer you a number of formal assessments, audits and appraisals for Automotive SPICE®, functional safety and CMMI®. We can also conduct quick checks, gap analysis and stocktaking exercises focusing on the requirements of automotive and business capabilities such as agility. We will show you how your unit, department or company compares to the competition. This allows you to understand the changes you will need to make to adhere to new or changing requirements.
We perform Functional Safety Assessments (FSA) as an inspection body. For this purpose, we were audited by the German National Accreditation Body, DAkkS, and successfully accredited as a type C inspection body.
Competent and motivated people are the key to successful implementation. We offer fast-track training and coaching services to allow your people to acquire specialist knowledge and the skills they will require to implement improvements as part of front-line projects. Our coaching services provide valuable support during times of transformation, ensuring that changes gain acceptance and are lived out and believed in during projects.
