Dependability Management - Part 2: Dependability Programme Elements and Tasks
|Publication Date:||1 September 1997|
This Part of IEC 300 describes the elements of a dependability programme and gives guidance on the selection of tasks necessary to achieve specified dependability of products. This standard cross-references and complements IS0 9004-1. It is applicable to hardware and systems containing software products.
Descriptions of individual programme elements are provided. Detailed procedures to be employed when implementing the tasks are not included but reference is made to related application guides contained in IEC 300-3 and to other IEC International Standards on dependability management.
The format of this part of IEC 300 primarily addresses the case of a two party relationship, between a "supplier" who provides products or maintenance services and a "customer". Parts of the product may be purchased from other sources by the supplier (by subcontracting). Where it is necessary to clarify such a situation, the terms "first level supplier" (with direct relation to the customer) and "second level supplier ("subcontractor", with direct relation to the first level supplier) are used. The actual users (end users) of the product may be the customers themselves or a third body.
