Abstract

In this paper, new requirements to enhance any ISO 15504 conformant assessment methodology for embedded systems development process assessment are presented. The findings of the paper were discovered in an ESPRIT Project called PROFES (PROduct Focused improvement of Embedded Software processes), where the specific characteristics of embedded systems development were analysed in three industrial organisations. The results of the paper are requirements to include product management, product life-cycle and some specific support processes in the assessment of embedded software producing units. These processes, which are defined and outlined in the paper, enhance regular assessment models by making them more applicable for assessing embedded product development organisations and projects.
