Fields of application
This document defines the process assessment guidelines needed to meet the purpose of defined VSE profiles. It is applicable to all VSE profiles and is compatible with ISO/IEC 33002.
The possible uses of this document are as follows.
a) Assessment to evaluate the process capabilities. Use when an organization wants an assessment of profile conformance (basic, etc.) of the implemented processes.
b) Supplier's capability assessment. Use when a customer asks for a third party to conduct an assessment in order to obtain a profile (basic, etc.) of the implemented process by the system or software development and maintenance supplier.
The target audience of this document is primarily those who perform or have direct relationship with process assessments of VSEs. This document also contains information that can be useful to developers of assessment methods and assessment tools and those requiring additional guidance on the assessmet process.
This document is addressed to people who have a direct relation with the assessment process based on the VSE profiles (e.g. the assessors and the sponsor of the assessment) who need guidance on ensuring that the requirements for performing an assessment have been met.
It is intended that ISO/IEC/TR 29110-1 be read first when initially exploring VSE profile documents.
