Zuken: Zuken's automotive quality processes recognized by Continental

Continental awards Automotive SPICE Level 2

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Zuken has been awarded Automotive SPICE® certification Level 2 in recognition of the strength of its systems and processes for the automotive industry. The award followed a rigorous assessment of CR-5000 Board Designer software by accredited auditors at Continental Automotive Group – one of the leading automotive suppliers worldwide.

“Zuken is among the top performers within the 80 companies we have audited so far; it is uncommon for a software supplier such as Zuken to achieve Automotive SPICE certification to this level,” says Achim Hoenow, Head of Software Supplier Quality Management at Continental Automotive. “This result shows Zuken to be a robust and reliable partner for the automotive industry supply chain,” he adds.

The audit was carried out as part of a wide-ranging assessment program of Continental’s key suppliers over the past few years. It was initially triggered by the rise in volume of electronic systems within vehicles, meaning companies such as Continental need higher quality levels in software supplied to them to avoid negative impacts on manufacturing times and costs.
