Automotive Software Factory (ASF) started when production software no longer met the ever-growing requirements of car manufacturers. There was a need to introduce standards, methodologies and technologies that would allow the traceability and reverse engineering of each software development phase, in order to obtain a more reliable and high quality product.
ASF has smartly turned this difficulty into a growth opportunity, introducing early on standards such as AUTOSAR and MISRA C as well as SPICE (currently the required standard for most car manufactuers) in its processes.
The Automotive Software Validation (ASV) Business Unit is the division of Netcom Group which deals with testing in the automotive field. Our team writes and performs tests in order to certify the software quality and that the control unit software is implemented correctly, according to the specifications and, in particular, complies with all the safety requirements.
