The paper addresses conceptual models for relating together embedded systems' product and process characteristics. The purpose of the models is to describe in detail the characteristics of embedded systems for enhancing ISO 15504 (SPICE project) conformant assessment methods to cover embedded systems' software process assessment. The analysis of embedded systems is based on the domain expertise of the PROFES partners, a literature survey and assessments performed at several industrial sites. The paper illustrates product features and their relations to processes by using Goal/Question/Metrics (GQM) and BOOTSTRAP to realize the conceptual models.
