Dear All, June was a challenging month, which had couple of travels to Germany and Japan. Then, CC-PS/NE1 visited RBEI. Challenges were in multiple folds. Quality, AB10 Generation transfer and additionally continue supporting future generations like AB12 and ISU. We have a huge challenge on us to improve the quality and be efficient. So, defect reduction continue to be the major goal. AB10 Generation transfer is in its last sprint. We do have tough goals to be met, mainly reduction of defects found outside Software. During Japan visit, we brainstormed to introduce customer SPOC’s inside FT and strengthen requirements & design phase (left part of the V model). This is an important step in improving the quality. Details of these actions would be shared in group and department meeting. Feel free to contact me / GrMs for details. Looking forward for support from you in improving the Quality in Safety Software.

Airbags milestone board unveiled in ESA
Airbags Milestone board was unvieled by Padmaja and Rajesha on 17th June. The milestone board shows the milestone planning for the key projects for an entire year. In addition, the sliders on the board depict: Quality Gates (QG1,QG2,QG3,QG4), Customer samples (A sample, B sample etc) and Internal Milestones (Requirement freeze, Software freeze, Integration, Requirement tests etc). The board aims to bring clarity and transparency of the project milestones to the function teams, thereby improving the resource allocation, prioritization of deliveries and detecting clashes in delivery times. This was presented to CC-PS/NE1 and EPS during their visit and was appreciated. Nevertheless, the challenge would be to maintain it up to date and sustain. Any ideas and feedback for improvements are most welcome.
