Process Assessment using Automotive SPICE

Automotive SPICE® is a method for improving and assessing the development process relating to control units. The German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) recommends that suppliers working in the field of electronics development structure their processes according to the guidelines laid down under Automotive SPICE®. We have carried out more than 10,000 hours of assessment in this area, offering a treasure trove of expertise in understanding the processes encountered in mechatronic systems.

As a Lead Assessor, you will already have a number of years’ experience working in the field of process assessment with Automotive SPICE®.

The things you can’t wait to work on

  • You will head up Automotive SPICE® assessments at automotive suppliers and provide development units with recommendations on the systematic and sustainable improvements they can introduce to their processes and procedures.
  • As a trainer, you will provide instruction to users of Automotive SPICE® and help educate assessors in keeping with intacsTM guidelines. 
  • Because you already have a solid understanding of work involved in everyday development, ideally from first-hand experience, you are familiar with agile methods and safety requirements adhering to ISO 26262 standard. 
  • Your work will take you all around the world and you enjoy working in an intercultural environment.
  • You will work closely with teams of motivated colleagues and look forward to exchanging experiences and ideas with them.
