About This Item


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 standard will provide an integrated set of data descriptions for recording or capturing the results of the software life cycle processes of ISO 12207. The proposed standard will relate the needs of the developer who produces the life cycle data to the presentation needs of the various parties who use the data. It will provide direction to which IEEE standards provide guidance on presentation and organization of the life cycle data.


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 proposed standard will increase harmonization between IEEE standards and ISO 12207. Improve useability of ISO/IEC 12207 in the industrial environment. Provide an integrated content view of data produced by life cycle processes.


New IEEE Standard - Superseded. 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 Association (EIA) as formulated by a joint project of the two organizations. IEEE/EIA 12207.1 provides guidance for recording life cycle data resulting from the life cycle processes of IEEE/EIA 12207.0.
