Software Quality Assurance Processes
|Publication Date:||27 March 2014|
This standard establishes requirements for initiating, planning, controlling, and executing the Software Quality Assurance (SQA) processes of a software development or maintenance project. This standard is harmonized with the software life cycle process of ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207:20081 and the information content requirements of ISO/IEC/IEEE 15289:2011.
NOTE-Annex A presents detailed explanations and mappings between ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207:2008 and IEEE Std 730™-2014 subclauses.2
The activities described in this standard are intended to enable the software project to use the SQA processes to produce and collect evidence that form the basis for giving a justified statement of confidence that the software product conforms to its established requirements. The purpose of this standard is to provide uniform, minimum acceptable requirements for SQA processes in support of a software project. In considering adoption of this standard, regulatory bodies should be aware that specific application of this standard may already be covered by one or more IEEE or ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standards documents relating to quality assurance, definitions, or other matters. It is not the purpose of this document to supersede, revise, or amend existing standards directed to specific industries or applications.
