Language:       English

What is Automotive Compliance (AC) Process



The AC Process is a well documented process definition which includes the following:

  • Process Roles 
  • Process Activities and Tasks 
  • Process Work Products 
  • Tool Guidance (enacting the process with IBM ELM toolchain) 
  • Templates for IBM ELM tools supporting the AC Process (templates are provided for IBM DOORS Next Generation ® (DNG), IBM Engineering Test Management ® (ETM), IBM Engineering Workflow Management ® (EWM) and IBM Architecture Management ®(AM)) 
  • ISO 26262, ISO/SAE 21434 standards and ASPICE Capability Model topics 
  • Mapping between process elements and ISO 26262, ISO/SAE 21434 and ASPICE standards to ensure compliance.   
  • The AC Process is designed based on SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework), to support an agile systems and software engineering approach.  

The AC process is developed and documented in order to provide a process framework to the followers of this process, which will definitely help to comply with the target standards (ie, ISO 26262, ISO/SAE 21434 and ASPICE). 

The Automotive Compliance Process provides a process framework for system development that takes into account the certification needs for:

  • ASPICE Base and Generic Practices 
  • ISO 26262 Functional Safety requirements 
  • ISO/SAE 21434 Cybersecurity requirements 

The AC process definition has a mapping between process activities / work products and these standard requirements. This means, when a work product is generated in compliance with the AC Process or a task / activity is conducted again from the AC Process, you know which standard requirement is being covered and satisfied.

That will enable an effective gap analysis between project work and standard requirements. 

IBM ELM Automotive Compliance Process Training Topics 

We provide a custom training program developed for our customers’ needs. Our target outcome of this training program is, in addition to understanding the basic usage of the IBM Engineering Management Solution tools (namely, DNG, ETM, EWM and AM), also explore how these tools and solutions can be / should be used in the context of the Automotive Compliance Process. 

During the training we run an instance of the process flow on a sample system development example from the Automotive industry. 

We try to provide answers to the following selective questions during the training: 

  • How do we elicit stakeholder requirements?
  • How do we analyze / review system requirements?  
  • How to identify main capabilities of the system and plan requirements for different releases / variants? 
  • How to link requirements with test cases in different levels of the V-lifecycle?
  • How to develop test cases and manage manual test runs
  • How to plan development activities iteratively, using agile methodology? 
  • How to incorporate system architectural design (with requirements) 
  • How to prepare a traceability matrix between requirements, work items, plans, architecture (logical / physical) and tests. 
  • How to manage versions and variants 

All these questions are approached in the context of the Automotive Compliance Process.

Benefits of the Automotive Compliance Process Training 

Upon completion the IBM Automotive Compliance Process, you will have practical knowledge on:

  • how to apply the process tasks on the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management tools
  • how to merge tool usage with process flow.

Contact us to get a customized offer for your team. Upon discussion, we will learn your processes and incorporate key elements and terms used by your team into the training program.

Debating what asset management deployment option is best for your organization? Do you have a strategic direction to move workloads to the cloud? Do you have a shortage of personnel to support workloads? If you answered “Yes” to any of those questions, then join us Wednesday, March 15th, when we will provide an overview of the IBM-managed, cloud-based deployment options for Maximo Application Suite and explain the benefits of each.

Our experts will give an in-depth comparison of Maximo Application Suite Dedicated and Maximo Application Suite as a Service and will dive into the preconditions, process, timeline, and roles and responsibilities for migrating workloads from a client-managed EAM installation to an IBM-managed MAS Dedicated or MAS SaaS solution. Come hear from our team who has been delivering hosting for Maximo for more than 20 years. Also, check out the free MAS trial: Click here for the MAS Trial

REConf 24.-28. April 2023

rsz reconf


Auch dieses Jahr wird Softacus bei der REConf, die vom 24 bis 28. April 2023 stattfindet, sein.

Die REConf (Requirements Engineering Conference) ist Europas führende Konferenz mit Schwerpunkt Requirements Engineering. Auf der Veranstaltung werden neue Methoden, Trends und Tools in Vorträgen, Diskussionsrunden und Workshops diskutiert.

Am zweiten Tag der Konferenz (25 April) um 16:00 Uhr wird unser Solution Director, Jan Jancar, zusammen mit Peter Schedl von IBM, einen Vortrag zum Thema "Traceability - das Salz in der Suppe" halten

Anforderungen sind der Ausgangspunkt der Entwicklung und somit auch der Traceability für alle Entwicklungsdaten. Projekte stellen heute bereits sicher, dass alle Kundenanforderungen in Systemanforderungen überführt wurden und Testfälle spezifiziert sind. Nicht selbstverständlich ist die Traceability in Verbindung mit KPI’s oder der toolgestützten Impactanalyse bei sich ändernden Anforderungen. 

Softacus zeigt gemeinsam mit IBM Best Practices wie sich solche Szenarien mit DOORS und der Engineering Lifecycle Management Lösung einfach abbilden lassen.
