The VDA reworked the existing Automotive SPICE Guidelines version 1.0 based on the Process Assessment Model Automotive SPICE 4.0 that is released in conjunction with this Blue-Gold-Book. This was made to take appropriate steps to improve the quality and comparability of assessment results.

Major improvements are made regarding addition of new domains like Hardware Development and Machine Learning. The rating guidelines are provided for all processes in the process assessment model and a new recommended scope for assessments has been determined.

The Blue-Gold-Book “Automotive SPICE for Cybersecurity” of 2021 remains a separate document.

The “Automotive SPICE Process Assessment Model” is increasingly used within the global automotive industry for the objective evaluation of processes and the subsequent improvement of processes at project and organization level. It shall not be misinterpreted as a development methodology. The objective in drawing up this document was to support the interpretation and application of the model for the automotive industry and to provide guidance and recommendations to increase the comparability of assessments results.

This document is aimed to support a mature and sustainable development within the automotive industry.
