Full Description


The base document ISO/IEC 12207, establishes a common framework for software life cycle processes, with well-defined terminology, that can be referenced by the software industry. It contains activities, and tasks that are to be applied during the acquisition of a system that contains software, a stand-alone software product, and software service and during the supply, development, operation, and maintenance of software products. Software includes software portion of firmware. The supplement will contain the in sum country foreward including compliance methodology, software life cycle prodess objectives, software life cycle data objectives, key concepts of understanding 12207, and errata. The project will contribute to a suite of standards consisting of three parts: ISO 12207, 12207.1, and 12207.2.


The base document provides a consistent framework and related methods for the supplier and acquirer of software to establish, understand, and communicate between the acquirer and the supplier their respective responsibilities and the requirements for the software. The supplement will add: (1) enhance compliance approach to fit a variety of situations. (2) provide clarification to the intent of ISO 12207, (3) provide additions to meet the conventions of the Software Engineering Standards for process standards.


New IEEE Standard - Inactive - Superseded. Superseded by 12207:2008(E) (IEEE Std 12207-2008). This IEEE Standards product is part of the family on Software Engineering. ISO/IEC 12207 provides a common framework for developing and managing software. IEEE/EIA 12207.0 consists of the clarifications, additions, and changes accepted by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) as formulated by a joint project of the two organizations. IEEE/EIA 12207.0 contains concepts and guidelines to foster better understanding and application of the standard. Thus this standard provides industry a basis for software practices that would be usable for both national and international business.
