Conference Chair

Introduction

In my research and my consulting work I often hear “Do really I have to

ensure my developers work according to SPICE?”, “Who pays for all the

extra effort?”, “What do I gain?”, “I do not want to limit the innovative ability

of my developers!”, or simply “What is SPICE?”

If you are looking for answers to these or similar questions from those who

have experienced the effects of transforming development organisations

and supply relationships in accordance with SPICE, the International SPICE Days 2009 are the

place to be. The International SPICE Days are the premier event for exchanging experience,

learning about what lies ahead, and – last but not least – networking in a professional but

relaxed atmosphere.

SPICE, or better ISO 15504, has shown its value through application in many different domains,

from automotive to telecommunication. The rapid development of software and software-determined

systems is characterised by increasing specialisation in new application domains bringing

new requirements, demanding industrialisation to master complexity and achieve effi ciency,

and expanding globalisation of the software ecosystem both in development cooperation and

product and service deployment. Can SPICE keep up the pace and help businesses and users to

turn some of the inherent risks of the software revolution into chances of success?

Your contribution is invited to allow the International SPICE Days 2009 to answer this question.

Come and join us in Stuttgart.

Sincerely,

Hans-Jürgen Kugler

Corporation

Introduction

Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation

We, Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation, are the central

contact for investors and companies in the City of Stuttgart and the fi ve

neighbouring counties. As a public agency, we raise awareness of the qualities

that our region has to offer – e.g. as an excellent business location for

high-technology sectors – and support companies setting up here.

I would like to express our pleasure to host this year’s SPICE Days and its international participants

in Stuttgart. The SPICE Days as an international platform drive the essential life-longlearning

and qualifi cation efforts for software specialists from different sectors. It is a valuable

contribution to our efforts to stimulate dialogue within and across sectoral networks.

Stuttgart region is renown for automotive industry, and this is not only because it is here that the

fi rst motor vehicle was patented by Gottlieb Daimler. Today, Stuttgart has an outstanding automotive

cluster, where intensive R&D activities are carried out by OEMs, suppliers and through

a dense fabric of academic and research institutions. What is less known about Stuttgart is its

burgeoning software cluster, which has been on a steady growth path. Combining their skills in

software technologies with the specialized know-how available in diverse sectors in the region,

software enterprises of Stuttgart deliver outstanding results. I and my colleagues are by all

means ready to assist you in fi nding answers to all your questions about Stuttgart region as a

business location and the services we offer at this year’s Spice Days.

Sincerely,

Dr. Reha Tözün

Baden-Württemberg is the birthplace of the car and the

automotive industry. The automotive industry is traditionally

a fairly focused grouping of manufacturers and

suppliers. The advent of electronics and software in and

around the car is changing the industry signifi cantly. In

times of change it is important to keep a “community

spirit” of all those involved – for the benefi t of the whole

industry. This is the motto of the International SPICE

Days strengthen the community to foster progress.

Stuttgart as the capital of Baden-Württemberg is historically

the right place to be for this. The Royal Württemberg

Automobile Club was founded here, the oldest

still functioning automotive community association.

The decisive meeting to engage with ISO 15504 in the

form of Automotive SPICE also took place in Stuttgart.

Today the automotive industry can claim to have initiated

the most widespread use of ISO 15504 derived process

assessments of any software intensive industry.

With a conference location in Stuttgart, it is only natural

that the International SPICE Days should focus on

the lessons learned from this industry-wide adoption

and what the plans for the future are. Moving from improvement

of single organisations to attempting to improve

a whole value creation network is an undertaking

many other industries may be able to draw benefi t from.

Peter Bölter, intacs e.V. & SQS AG

SPICE Crash Course

SPICE (= Software Process Improvement dEtermination)

is used in the market as a synonym for ISO15504, the

international standard for Software Process Improvement.

In simple words the tutorial contains these topics:

What should be part of an assessment

How to perform an assessment

Examples of Assessment Models (ISO15504-5, automotiveSPICE®)

SPICE was developed to allow comparison of assessment

results and to support tailoring of assessment

content to different scopes, i.e. different sizes of companies

or different focus like supplier assessment or

project assessment etc.

This tutorial gives an overview of SPICE for managers

or software and system developers. It is accepted as a

fresh up for assessors who have not passed the exam

or to fulfi l the assessor certifi cation criteria for trained

assessors (training older than 1 year, training provider

not accredited etc.). This tutorial is not a full training for

assessor qualifi cation!

Dr. Pierre Metz, SynSpace GmbH, Germany

Process specifi c Interpretations for the Generic Practices

of Capability Levels 2 and 3

For both process practictioners and assessors it is necessary

to interpret the Generic Practices of Capability

Level 2 and 3 specifi cally for each process. However,

there has been a lot of controversy, open and recurring

questions on how to understand these indicators

in practice.

The aim of this tutorial is to offer comprehensive process-specifi

c interpetations and guidance for Capability

Level 2 and 3 that have been collected in the domains

automotive, aerospace, medical devices.

All Generic Practice interpretations are presented twofold,

i.e. from the two different perspectives “Practical

hints for process implementers” and “Rating guidance

& pitfalls for assessors” allowing both types of audiences

to benefi t from the tutorial. The tutorial takes an

interactive approach, i.e. it motivates active discussions

and contributions on industry examples and even

rating best practices from the participants thereby

eliciting fruitful information for everybody.

Demonstration of real traceability

The tutorial presents a real-life example from the automotive

domain on how to establish traceability in

the development processes. The processes ENG2 to

ENG10 are covered.

Foundation of the demonstrated solution is the method

of component-based modelling. This tool-supported

approach incorporates modern software engineering

techniques like code-generation, componentorientation

and modelling. It will be shown that these

techniques allow establishing full traceability over the

whole lifetime of a software system without overhead.

Besides the core topic traceability the following topics

are also covered:

• Change management and impact analysis

• Functional testing and functional safety

• Off-shore testing

• Reliability of software documentation

Building a High Maturity Organisation

“Understand the past, Control and improve the present

and Predict the future.” - To be able to do so quantitatively,

is the basis for factual management and systematic

process improvement.

This workshop aims to share with participants the

implementation experiences of Continental Automotive

Singapore Pte Ltd in high maturity practices of SPICE.

It will also share concepts and strategies for building

effective process performance models to achieve

quantitativeprocess objectives and ultimately to support

the business goals.

Dr. Janos Ivanyos, Memolux Ltd, Hungary

Implementing ISO/IEC 15504 for IT Management and Internal

Financial Control Processes

Major governance scandals, independently from the

recent global fi nancial and economic crisis, call the

attention that not only the basic business operations

need to be assessed, audited or certifi ed to the conformance

with specifi c standards like ISO/IEC 15504, but

also all corporate governance related processes. The

Satyam case shows that even those big IT companies,

which are committed to quality and process improvement

issues, can fail to avoid fi nancial crimes of executive

management.

ISO/IEC 15504 assessors and consultants have the responsibility

to call the attention of their clients (both

internally and externally) that their knowledge and experiences

gained from their software related core business

domains are reusable for improving governance

capabilities. This tutorial will cover issues of how the

mostly referred COBIT and COSO frameworks can be

applied as conformant process reference models and

how the ISO/IEC 15504 capability measurement methodology

supports management to evaluate effectiveness

of IT and fi nancial control systems.

“Interest Group Automotive Eclipse” (currently members

from Bosch, Eclipse Foundation, Itemis, KUGLER MAAG

CIE, and other members of the Eclipse Community)

Towards an Automotive Tool Platform Based on Eclipse

Automotive SPICE assessment fi ndings often refl ect

critically on practices deployed to handle requirements,

to scale testing, and dealing with traceability up- and

downstream. The complexity of the processes would

be reduced by an integrated tool platform dedicated to

automotive needs. Eclipse has become a de-facto standard

for tool environments in other industries. Eclipse

is not just a tool suite, but the basis of an ecosystem.

The workshop will present Eclipse, the Interest Group

Automotive Eclipse, its objectives and status and invite

participants to join the initiative:

rationale and goals of the Interest Group , introduction

to Eclipse, Eclipse in systems engineering (this includes,

several contributions on development and testing),

ecosystems - new directions in supply network organisation,

status and roadmap for an automotive Eclipse

What challenges would derive from a wide-spread

adoption of Eclipse, especially for the development processes.

Would Eclipse and Automotive SPICE be synergetic

or hinder each other? What needs to be done to

ensure a positive outcome?

www.fkfs.de/english

Institute of Software Technology at

University of Stuttgart

ISTE/ps conducts research in the fi eld of data race detection

by static analysis, and develops analysis tools to

identify statements in the source code of a concurrent

program (multi-threaded or interrupt-driven) that can

cause data races at run time. Data races are situations

in which one thread manipulates memory that is used

by another thread in parallel. That other thread can

thus see an inconsistent global state in memory and

consequently serious errors can result. Static analysis

is able to identify all positions in the source code where

these errors might occur, and thus provides strong protection

against them.
