The Evolution of Documentation: How to Adapt for New Electric and Autonomous Vehicle Requirements


Documentation and documented information requirements are evolving, as all things do, especially during periods of major technological innovation like the one we are in now. The ISO 10013 Guidance for Documented Information specifically addresses the documentation needs of a quality management system (QMS), but today’s documentation needs are evolving beyond the QMS to documentation requirements for embedded software for Automotive SPICE, the ISO 26262 Road Vehicles – Functional Safety standard, and cybersecurity management systems such as the ISO 21434 Automotive Cybersecurity Standard.

In this 30-minute Webinar, the speaker—a certified Principal Assessor for Automotive SPICE and implementer and auditor of ISO 26262 and ISO 21434—will cover recommended documentation structures, process maps, processes, and work instructions using software. Chad Kymal was the US expert for ISO 10013 Guidance for Documented Information.

Topics include:

  • How to best integrate documentation requirements for the QMS
  • The new and evolving electric and autonomous vehicle standards

A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
