Automotive SPICE stands for Software Process Improvement and Capability Determination.

Often written as ASPICE, this is the ISO/IEC 15504 standard, a model which defines processes and best practices for software and software-based system development, especially for the automotive industry.

The purpose of ASPICE is to evaluate development factors that allow assessors to determine an organization’s capacity for effectively and reliably delivering software products.

The ASPICE standard is necessary because the automotive industry is increasingly driven by software at every level – from planning to production to everyday use. ASPICE gives suppliers a structured framework that helps them adopt best practices, identify defects early on, and meet OEM requirements.

The truth of the matter is that the automotive industry is getting more and more complex every day. The primary challenge shifted from the mechanical aspect of the car to a more technological approach: the software.

Implementing ASPICE in your company has considerable benefits, such as:

  • ASPICE satisfies evolving demands from customers
  • ASPICE reduces risks
  • There’s a faster learning curve
  • Allows an organization to have responsibles for each stage of the process and, by consequence, fewer discussions
  • Improves the ability to manage increasing projects complexity
  • Reduces quality costs
  • Allows for better control and visibility of the development progress
