|Publication Date:||24 May 2013|
This International Standard contains requirements and
recommendations for the evaluation of software product quality and
clarifies the general concepts. It provides a process description
for evaluating software product quality and states the requirements
for the application of this process. The evaluation process can be
used for different purposes and approaches. The process can be used
for the evaluation of the quality of predeveloped software,
This International Standard establishes the relationship of the evaluation reference model to the SQuaRE documents as well as shows how each SQuaRE document should be used during the activities of the evaluation process.
It is intended for those responsible for software product evaluation and is appropriate for developers, acquirers and independent evaluators of software products. These three different approaches are detailed in ISO/IEC 14598-3, ISO/IEC 14598-4, and ISO/IEC 14598-5.
It is not intended for evaluation of other aspects of software products (such as functional requirements, process requirements, business requirements, etc.).
