Working group 13

The objective of working group 13 in the VDA is the definition of the requirements, based on Automotive SPICEĀ®, on the conduction of process evaluations and on the monitoring of the resulting process improvements in the development of software-defined systems. This was done using the preliminary work of the manufacture initiative software (HIS) as a foundation. The procedure is to be standardized through the definition of the requirements on the assessment process, so that the organizations involved in an assessment can better prepare for the assessment and so that the comparability and reproducibility of the results can be increased.
