What is Requirements Management for Automotive?

Requirements management is an iterative set of activities that enables the delivery of a complete product description that meets the needs and expectations of customers and internal or external stakeholders, regarding every step which needs to be performed during the requirements development process like elicitation, evaluation, documentation, or refinement. Therefore, requirements management is an especially important topic in the automotive industry. The reason behind this is very simple – the automotive requirements management process has its own list of very strict requirements.

In order to ensure that these requirements are met, businesses need to have a solid understanding of what requirements management entails. Requirements management is the process of identifying, documenting, and tracking all project requirements. This includes both functional and non-functional requirements. Functional requirements are those that describe what the system should do, while non-functional requirements are those that describe how the system should perform.

What is ASPICE?

ASPICE is short for Automotive SPICE. It’s a software process improvement framework that was designed specifically for the automotive industry. ASPICE was created in response to the critical requirements of the automotive sector, which demand a higher level of quality and reliability than other industries.

In other words, the Automotive SPICE, or as it is commonly known, the ASPICE is a framework based on industry best practices for IT system development in the automobile sector. It’s a method of working for software developers in this field. Due to the fact that software creation is such an important aspect of this industry, this standardized set of work processes has been established.

The goal of ASPICE is to help organizations assess and improve their ability to deliver software products effectively and reliably. ASPICE is based on the SPICE framework for software process assessment, which was developed by the ISO and IEC in 1993.
