Assessment & Consulting

Experience and Innovation is the Key to Success.


Assessment is not enough, you need extensive engineering experiences to establish proper improvement solutions. ISCN has specialised in solving SPICE by innovative, time saving and cost effective solutions. We have collected experiences in over 700 industry reports and have developed expertise in specific fields which show a synergy between both, innovative engineering practices and SPICE.

Assessment Teams

Different assessment teams are coached by Dr Richard Messnarz, who has been active as assessor since 1991 (BOOTSTRAP, SPICE, Automotive SPICE ©). In the ISCN team two principal assessors, one competent assessor and two provisional assessors are involved. In a strategy resource agreement with partners of ISCN a larger pool of assessors can jointly be used.

Through the different research and knowledge partnerships we are able to create multinational and multi competent consulting teams since 1994.
