Project management fundamentals

At the program start, you will get introduced to the world of project management through role-play and gamification from Prof. Uwe Strohbeck of the TU Rosenheim. You will become fully familiar with concepts such as planning, milestones, Gantt charts, KPIs, trends and monitoring of your example project. Gain a hands-on experience in project planning and project control and conquer the challenges of project management.

Automotive quality and project management

Next, you will find out what is needed to define, execute and track projects specifically in the automotive arena. After grasping the basic QA concepts, you will get into ASPICE, understand its levels and all the basic procedures which are required in automotive projects. Unlock this field through a set of real-world exercises based on automotive ALM tools, with our instructor, Dr. Dragana Djordjevic, who is an intacs-certified ASPICE assessor.

Product development with SCRUM

You will get into agile development in the SCRUM framework, and learn how to successfully apply it to an automotive project. Stay out of the usual misconception that SCRUM can be applied everywhere and in the same way - automotive is very strict in processes and procedures and only instructors like Dr. Nenad Cetic of TTTech Auto who use it every day can uncover all the hidden gems of agile vs automotive.

Introduction to ISO 26262

Finally, we will give you safety on a platter by practicing safety processes with our TUV-certified, Vienna and Grenoble-schooled Prof. Dr. Bogdan Pavkovic. You will cover the basics of functional safety, including the important ISO 26262 standard in automotive. You will see how project management and safety go hand-in-hand, and understand concepts such as hazard and risk assessment, safety integrity and final safety case.
