Systems and software engineering — Vocabulary
|Publication Date:||15 December 2010|
Consistent with ISO vocabulary standards, each technical committee is responsible for standard terminology in its area of specialization. This International Standard provides a common vocabulary applicable to all systems and software engineering work falling within the scope of ISO JTC 1/SC 7.
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;
• terms whose meaning in the information technology (IT) field could be directly inferred from their common English meaning.
