Volkswagen Group Components

As an independent business unit under the umbrella of Volkswagen AG, Volkswagen Group Components is responsible for the development and manufacture of strategic components for the Group's vehicle-producing brands. Around 75,000 employees work in five business units - Engine and Foundry, Gearbox and E-Drive, Chassis and Battery System, Seats and Battery Cell - in over 60 plants at 48 production sites worldwide. They develop and manufacture vehicle components, shape future topics such as charging infrastructure or battery recycling - and thus make a decisive contribution to the value of the Volkswagen Group, its brands, and products. The Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group Components is Thomas Schmall.


Two years ago, Volkswagen Group Components at the Kassel plant began looking at establishing a new embedded system development process as part of the expansion of its product portfolio to include electric powertrains. The goal was to achieve standard-compliant development in a regulated environment. For this purpose, new processes had to be defined and established. At the same time, the project members had to be actively involved in this change and integrated into the change process.

Method Park supports us in the introduction of a product development process and ensures that our processes are compliant with Automotive SPICE® now and in the future. Since this introduction, Method Park has successfully accompanied us in a development project and decisively helps to accomplish the mindset change in the project team. An experienced and competent Method Park employee was also strongly involved in the process coaching. This enables us to reach a good process maturity level in a short time. With his support, we established our Automotive SPICE®-compliant standard operating procedure model for follow-up projects.
