Software documentation primer presentation

Status:
IEEE Std 1558-2004 is now a published standard, available for purchase from the IEEE On-Line Store

Upcoming Meetings:
Please advise the chair if you plan to attend

No meetings are currently planned.


Scope:
This standard establishes the minimum requirements for application software documentation throughout the software development life cycle for rail equipment and systems including associated test and maintenance equipment.
Purpose:
Many different requirements for application software documentation are presently being specified for software used in rail equipment and systems and for related applications. This has led to a lack of standardization in the information provided on equipment and systems incorporating software. This standard, when used by the authority having jurisdiction, carbuilders and system/subsystem suppliers is intended to specify documents which improve the understanding of software functionality, facilitate software corrections and upgrades, improve on-time delivery, assist the development of quality software, and lower software aquisition and maintenance cost.
