Compliance Made Easy with Jama Connect for Automotive and Semiconductor Development
Steve Rush: Hi everyone. I’m happy to be here today to take you through the presentation. I wanted to start with a high level agenda and an introduction. We’ll be discussing Automotive compliance in general. To start, we’ll be looking at specific service offerings that you can use to help leverage, to evaluate your compliance against certain Automotive standards.
There are two forces often related that I like to think about when it comes to compliance that really impact the organization as a whole, from engineers to executives and everybody really in between. And those are process and quality. And I like to think about compliance as the intersection of those two often related ideas. Meeting the objectives of these standards may achieve both process and quality, but developing a compliant process and system, this will speed up development by instituting good process and reducing rework. It will help catch and identify defects early in the development process. However, there’s many evolving regulations and standards in this Automotive sector that make the idea of compliance all the more challenging to understand, let alone demonstrate. Perhaps you don’t even know where to start when it comes to achieving compliance in an Automotive system. It might feel like you are building a car while it’s driving.
At the same time tasked with implementing the process and tools to support the process and unsure which should come first. And we want to talk a little bit about this through the lens of compliance and make the case that Jama Connect is a tool well suited to get you up and running quickly, optimized against popular Automotive standards. To assist with this, we’ll discuss the diagnostic that Jama Software offers as a service that’ll help you navigate these important compliance questions. But I fully believe that by meeting the objectives of some of these critical Automotive standards we will discuss today that you’ll balance both process and quality and achieve compliance.

Sam Yerramalla: Today we are highlighting some offerings that will help guide Automotive customers or prospects like you with your compliance process. We feel these diagnostics can be very helpful whether you are a customer of Jama Software or a prospect. If you’re a Jama Software prospect who’s not yet purchased Jama Connect, these diagnostics makes the case that Jama Connect can help you meet the objectives of the Automotive standards. And namely, there are three standards offerings that we provide. One is the ASPICE Diagnostics, the Automotive Functional Safety Diagnostics, and the Cybersecurity Diagnostics. Now these diagnostics can help you navigate the classic process versus tool conundrum. That is if you’re trying to understand whether you should build the process first or buy the tool first, you’ll first see firsthand how Jama Connect will help shape the process. If you’re a Jama Software customer, you can use these diagnostics as a baseline. Oftentimes, we get busy with our day-to-day work and we may drift away from the larger big picture.
And these diagnostics are meant to guide you to bring light into areas that you need improvement or any optimization of your current Jama Connect process. You can also be paired with a Jama Software consultant or a solutions architect who will take you through the diagnostics start to finish. The time commitment for each of these diagnostics is about two to three hours. We feel that’s reasonable considering the benefits you may get out of this. We focus on the outcomes and the objectives and how this will truly help meet your compliance needs by optimizing your Jama Connect usage. If you’re a customer or getting up and running in Jama Connect, if you’re a prospect who’s looking for purchasing Jama, you can see these diagnostics offerings along with other offerings that we provide on the Jama Software Success Program page at Jamasoftware.com/success. Here you’ll see details on the compliance offerings that we just mentioned and a lot more other offerings including offerings on onboarding Jama Connect, improving your process and requirements, quality, traceability, et cetera.

Yerramalla: You can also request an offering if you have a service program with no assigned consultant and our operations team will pair you up with someone. So as far as the Automotive standards and alignments are concerned, the diagnostics offerings that we provide are aligned to the three standards, the Automotive Spice, ISO 26262 and ISO 21434. Only certain areas of those standards are in scope. For example, things like part seven of the ISO 26262 for production and operation and decommissioning are not covered here. But you will see some of these sections here are covered by the diagnostics. So depending on which diagnostics is right for you, the risks that are identified will align to the different areas that you see on the screen. Now, it may be that you want to align to more than one standard. We certainly put you through multiple diagnostics to identify your risks pertaining to each of these standard.
The model which we use is the same, but the recommendation we provide and tailored solution that the diagnostics provides will be custom based on each scenario. And if you don’t know where to get started or you don’t know which of these diagnostics that you need to start first. Some things are obvious, again, that if you’re looking for cybersecurity compliance and that is of the greatest concern for you, then Cybersecurity Diagnostics, the 21434 is right.
And if you’re looking for developing any functional safety products that are used in the Automotive, then the ISO 26262 diagnostics is the correct one to start with. And if you’re looking for any software process improvements or quality management, then ASPICE is the place to start. But sometimes you need both APSICE and functional safety, for example, in which case we suggest the ASPICE Diagnostics first. And the reason is that we rank in the process ASPICE about the functional safety is that if you have a high level of ASPICE maturity or on the other side, if there are several risks that are flagged from the ASPICE Diagnostics, then those will impact your Functional Safety Diagnostics already.
So you would’ve covered those parts of it that as a prerequisite for the functional safety. And then the spirit of ASPICE is really the quality management. And this is important in every engineering organization. So if you’re unsure where to start, then ASPIE Diagnostics is one place. And if you don’t need to prove compliance to the latter, it’s really good because honoring it, the lead benefits in your process.
