V Model

Our development process

The development process adopted by I&M is modelled after the A-SPICE and ISO 26262 V-models:

  • in the descending part of the V, requirements are analysed, decomposed at subsystem and component level, then the HW/SW design is carried out to fulfil them; dedicated test cases are prepared, while multi-level check procedures track and correct issues that may arise during the design process;
  • in the ascending part of the V, test cases are applied, results collected and proper actions taken in case of discrepancies with respect of expected results;
  • the documentation is organized according to the ISO 9001 guidelines and is structured in standard folders.

Requirements, tests and issues to be corrected are traced and linked using dedicated tools.

Quality

Ideas & Motion has received the ISO 9001 certification in December 2020 with no observations from the auditor (TÜV SÜD) mostly because the development process was well established and already de facto ISO-compliant:

  • at management level risks, opportunities, strengths and weaknesses are evaluated every year to produce an improvement plan fully aware of the values of the Company and its competitors;
  • at operative level Quality concepts are applied to all relevant company processes to ensure robust design and customer satisfaction, while maintaining a practical approach in order to minimize the overhead and be well integrated with existing core processes;
  • all the personnel – including administrative people – is aware of and constantly applying Quality driven procedures to minimize errors and oversights;
  • we value people by celebrating diversity, treating others with respect, and putting safety, inclusion, and integrity at the heart of everything we do.
