SAE creates vehicle software assessment repository

  • 01-Apr-2010 05:49 EDT

With a goal of improving automotive software development capabilities and promoting more effective software process improvement activities and assessments, SAE International created the J2746 Software Assessment Repository. The repository is a secure online database system that facilitates accurate and secure sharing of corporations’ software development capabilities. The repository does not mandate the use of one assessment method over another. Instead, it reports the salient results from industry-accepted assessment methods, such as Automotive SPICE, CMMI, and provides guidelines for understanding in a uniform manner. “This is an important step both in terms of improving the quality and reliability of automotive embedded software and reducing developmental costs,” said Peter S. Abowd, President of Worldwide Automotive for Altia and Chairman of the J2746 Software Assessment Repository Committee. “This new repository promotes higher fidelity and more responsible disclosure of software development capability in a secure and easy-to-use format.”
