Consistent with ISO vocabulary standards, each technical committee is responsible for standard terminology in its area of specialization. This document provides a common vocabulary applicable to all systems and software engineering work falling within the scope of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7, Software and systems engineering, and the IEEE Computer Society Systems and Software Engineering Standards Committee (IEEE-CS S2ESC).
The scope of each concept defined has been chosen to provide a definition that is suitable for general application. In those circumstances where a restricted application is concerned, a more specific definition might be needed. Terms have been excluded if they were:
- considered to be parochial to one group or organization;
- company proprietary or trademarked;
- multi-word terms whose meaning could be inferred from the definitions of the component words; and
- terms whose meaning in the information technology (IT) field could be directly inferred from their common English dictionary meaning.
