Hyderabad, May 5 (UNI) Satyam Computer Services Ltd, a leading global business and information technology services provider, today announced that its 'Automotive Embedded Engineering (AEE) Practice' had achieved the PATHFINDER Organisational Maturity Level 5.
PATHFINDER was an assessment and certification scheme for process capability and organisational maturity. Satyam was only the third company to achieve the Level 5 certification, a release here said.
The assessment was performed for Satyam's Automotive SPICE (Software Process Improvement Capability Determination) process assessment model. It was evaluated on the basis of specification, design, implementation and testing of embedded solutions developed by the company for automotive applications. The assessment was performed by a joint team from KPMG and Impronova.
Automotive SPICE, launched by the Automotive Special Interest Group (SIG), was an initiative to develop a common framework for the assessment of suppliers in the Automotive Industry.
As a condition of contract, suppliers had to be assessed and achieve target capability levels against the Automotive SPICE process assessment model.
''This is a great achievement for Satyam, who has joined the elite group of high maturity organisations that have achieved PATHFINDER organisational maturity level 5 certification,'' said Alec Dorling, the owner of Impronova and the international project leader of the SPICE project.
