Full Description


This standard draws on IEEE Std 12207(TM)-2008 to describe system and software reuse processes.1 It describes the relationship of reuse processes to system life cycle processes described in Clause 6 (System Life Cycle Processes) of IEEE Std 12207-2008 and software life cycle processes described in Clause 7 (Software Specific Processes) of IEEE Std 12207-2008. The standard defines processes and specifies requirements for the processes but does not specify particular techniques. The scope of the specified processes is broader than that of IEEE Std 12207-2008 because reuse activities transcend the life cycle of any particular system. The specified processes are suitable on an organization-wide basis.


Most reuse processes are not distinct from the normal life cycle but instead must be integrated into other life cycle processes. Some acquirers require reuse because it has the potential to achieve faster time-to-market, improved quality, and cost avoidance. These considerations compel a process standard that explains how reuse processes may be incorporated into the life cycle.


Revision Standard - Active. A common framework for extending the system and software life cycle processes of IEEE Std 12207(TM)-2008 to include the systematic practice of reuse is provided. The processes, activities, and tasks to be applied during each life cycle process to enable a system and/or product to be constructed from reusable assets are specified. The processes, activities, and tasks to enable the identification, construction, maintenance, and management of assets supplied are also specified.
