These assessments do not only reveal gaps between the project in focus and the PAM. The receiver of the assessment report want to know objectively all potential risks in the product.

How many processes instances will be rated? Which capability levels should be included? How do you organize the interview partners, your assessment team, the meeting schedule? In this training, you will learn the whole process of performing an assessment.

You will learn the depth of Automotive SPICE® (ASPICE), the formalities of assessments and rating guidelines.
