The goal of this course is to understand ASPICE and to get to know the purpose of this standard.
This course is relevant for everyone how is in involved in quality assurance, change request management or supplier monitoring. If your company works according to Automotive SPICE® you can complete this course to get to know the relevant processes.
What Are the Supporting Process Group and Supplier Monitoring?
The version 3.1 of Automotive SPICE® includes 32 processes, which are represented in the process reference model. The processes are divided into 8 groups. In this course processes from the Supporting Process Group (SUP) and the Acquisition Process Group (ACQ) are covered. The Supporting Process Group includes 7 processes, namely Quality Assurance (SUP.1), Verification (SUP.2), Joint Review (SUP.4), Documentation (SUP.7), Configuration Management (SUP.8), Problem Resolution Management (SUP.9) and Change Request Management (SUP.10). The Supplier Monitoring ACQ.4 is part of the Acquisition Process Group which contains 7 processes, that all revolve around the customer and supplier interaction.
Why Are the Supporting Process Group and Supplier Monitoring Needed?
All ASPICE processes are designed to allow a structured and therefore effective work, by defining all relevant processes within development projects. The Automotive SPICE standard is required by customers. This applies not only for the system and software development processes, but also for the supporting processes and also to the supplier monitoring which is often crucial for a project success.
How Are the Supporting Process Group and Supplier Monitoring Related to Embedded Systems?
ASPICE describes the engineering processes but also all other processes which are relevant to successfully develop electronic control units including embedded system and embedded software development in the automotive environment. Here also the supporting processes and the customer and supplier interaction have to be clearly defined and described.
What Can You Learn About the Supporting Process Group and Supplier Monitoring in the Embedded Academy E-Learning?
In this course we focus on the processes which are part of the VDA Scope and thus mandatory for more or less every automotive electronics and software project. For the supporting processes this applies to Quality Assurance SUP.1, Configuration Management SUP.8, Problem Resolution Management SUP.9, and Change Request Management SUP.10. For the acquisition process group this applies to Supplier Monitoring ACQ.4.
The course is divided into several e-learning units. Each of them covers one process and its work products. At the beginning of each e-learning the respective process group is introduced and you get to know the connections between the different processes. The e-learnings highlight connection between different topics. This is particularly helpful for practical application work when processes and relationships need to be understood.
