Automotive SPICE

This is a domain-specific variant of the international SPICE standard (ISO/IEC 15504). It was developed and established in 2001 by AUTOSIG (Automotive Special Interest Group), which includes the German manufacturers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen.

CMMI

'CMMI' stands for Capability Maturity Model Integration and is a group of reference models for different areas of application – currently for product development, product acquisition, and service provision. A CMMI model is a systematic adaptation of proven practices that support the improvement of organisational structures. A CMMI model can be used to gain an overview of existing practices (e.g., in project planning), to objectively analyse organisational strengths and weaknesses, or to determine improvement measures and structure these in a meaningful way.
