Automotive SPICE – Maturity model for software processes

Within the automotive industry, the ability of a software supplier to develop and to qualify high-class software, is evaluated with the aid of the SPICE Process Assessment Model. The higher the SPICE Level, the more are the software processes of the suppliers matured.

Since its foundation, NIDEC driveXpert delivers software to external automotive suppliers who have to fulfill the requirements of level 1 and 2. To guarantee these quality standards our engineers constantly strive after improvement of our software processes and the software processes of our customers.
