Assessor Assist(tm)

Cars have Driver’s Assist – Trace has Assessor Assist!

– embedding and visualizing current ratings into VDA Automotive Guidelines

– evaluating status of Guidelines when ratings become available

– issue warings when rules or guidelines are broken

– Mathmatical rules configured for 94% of all rules and recommendations => for a HIS-scope L3 assessment, this typically results in 35% of all guidelines are handled automatically!

Some like the Grid view better!

Depending on you preferences you can shift between the List view and the Grid view anytime during the assessment – both are always up-to-date and consistent across the assessors

Add overlays to embed information

Overlays can be added into the assessment indicators – this is useful for a number of use cases:

– Adding personalized Indicator annotations (e.g. assessor questions) to make the assessment situation easier

– Defining organizational annotations – to align questions and practices across a group of assessors

– Cross-referencing standards, e.g. ISO 26262 or KGAS to do joint assessments/audits
