In the VDI Understanding Software Process Models Online Training you will learn about different approaches that support you in the structuring and coordination of automotive software projects. Completing this Online Training will allow you to define various process models and help you distinguish between classic and agile approaches, enabling you to choose and apply the right one for your project.

Choose the right approach for your automotive software project from the outset

Various approaches and models present different ways of managing projects. However, there are very specific requirements for the management of automotive software projects. This means that special software engineering parameters must be considered to overcome the challenges presented in automotive IT projects. In doing so, different process models fulfill various project requirements. In this 30-minute Online Training on Understanding Software Process Models you will learn about how to choose the right approach for your software project and what you need to pay attention to when implementing it.

This interactive online training will give you an overview of the key terms and basic concepts of software engineering, which will allow you to ascertain the complexity of your software projects from the outset. Starting with the ‘waterfall model’, you will learn about classic and agile software development processes, such as SCRUM or ‘eXtreme programming’, as well as the methods and tools available to you and how to apply them. You will also find out about the possibilities and the limitations of various process models, in order to help you choose the right ones to meet your project requirements.
