Robert BOSCH central quality division runs a BOSCH wide server, and assessors from all sites can use/access it. In divisions like BOSCH AS first a Raspberry server is used in the local assessment, then the assessment is exported and imported to the central server. Most use the central serer directly with a https access. Each business unit has an organizational account and each assessor has an assessor account. Automotive SPICE assessments in automotive steering, trainer in cooperation with central quality assurance for automotive spice.
ZF Friedrichshafen AG
ZF Friedrichshafen AG uses a number of laptop licenses, and runs a central server supported by the IT in the C division in Schweinfurt. ZF has used the portal since many years and assessments since approx. 2007 are maintained in the server. Recently Raspberry servers have been provided for field testing to selected people in ZF. automotive spice assessments in e-division, i-division, chassis-division, cybersecurity training, strategic improvement programme coaching for automotive spice

A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary. — Thomas Carruthers
ISCN has been formed originally based on research results from TU Graz (1994) and most experts of the company are still lecturing at the universities, are participating in actual leading research projects, and are supporting in series development projects in automotive. The experts are either 90% industry and 10% lecturing, or if they are still fully working at the university they are from applied research.
This way ISCN cooperates with
University of Technology Graz, Austria
University of Applied Sciences Joenneum, Graz Austria
Grenoble Institute of Technology, France
VSB Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic
Experts in ISCN have a research profile with knowledgeable h-index and i10-index and work in automotive research projects.
All experts working in ISCN teans have technical background and are not from a non-automotive field of study.
We're also managing an international conference for 26 years, the EuroSPI conference, in automotive topics with service, system and software improvement best practice aswell as managing a working party of leading Tier 1 in Germany and Austria cooperating, since 2003, on best practices for cybersecurity, functional safety, Automotive SPICE and traceability called SOQRATES.
The best practices from both EuroSPI and SOQRATES are integrated into our training and coaching programs for industry.
Involve me - ISCN follows a strategy that we motivate and convince engineers to e.g.
follow and use Automotive SPICE because we are engineers and we can convince engineers with our practical approach. Spice me up - we can access a knowledge base of best practices which help to really achieve a higher SPICE level when working with our team. Consult me - we do not just place a person in your company but we rather elaborate a real working example together with your team and
coach the team until your team has the capability ad also continues by themselves. Network me - we can connect you to real experience networks such as EuroSPI and SOQRATES.
