High Development Quality Reconfirmed: Vector Develops MICROSAR Basic Software According to Automotive SPICE Capability Level 3

Vector has further developed and applied its process for developing AUTOSAR basic software. The focus was on maximum reusability of the basic software in the framework of a product line development under consideration of different customer requirements.

In June 2014, this development process was assessed for conformity to Automotive SPICE Capability Level 3 by the company KUGLER MAAG CIE GmbH. The evaluated process areas match the HIS scope without regard to the system level; this means that they cover all areas which are relevant for pure software projects.

All process areas within the HIS scope were assessed with Automotive SPICE Capability Level 3. The results verified the high value that Vector places in the development quality of its products.

Specific strengths of the development process are:

  • High degree of standardization and automation by optimized tool support
  • Universal tool support in engineering processes (ENG)
  • Clearly defined responsibilities and agile process elements which enable quick reactions to changes in requirements
  • Clear assignment of responsibilities to defined roles
  • Ongoing development of processes and related tool support

In attaining SPICE Capability Level 3 once again, the process for developing AUTOSAR basic software is well equipped to meet future requirements. This verified high process quality is also an excellent foundation for developments related to the ISO 26262 safety standard.
