How IBM ELM supports your compliance to automotive standards

For Systems and Software Engineering in Automotive, the dominant process standard is the Automotive Process Improvement and Capability Assessment Model (ASPICE). Compliance to ASPICE is a prerequisite to work with many Automotive OEMs worldwide. The provided approach is a basis for future content to deal with additional challenges like functional safety (ISO-26262), SOTIF, and Cybersecurity SAE/ISO21434. The content provided significantly reduces the costs for audit preparation and compliance with ASPICE.
