Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This part of ISO/IEC 14143 provides a summary of the FSM-related standards and the relationship between: - the ISO/IEC 14143 series FSM framework International Standards that provide the definitions and concepts of FSM and conformance and verification of FSMMs, and - the ISO/IEC standard FSMMs, i.e. ISO/IEC 19761, ISO/IEC 20926, ISO/IEC 20968 and ISO/IEC 24570.
This part of ISO/IEC 14143 also provides a process to assist users to select and develop an FSMM that meets their requirements as well as provides guidance on how to use FS. This part of ISO/IEC 14143 also gives guidance on how to use FS. FSMMs include, but are not limited to, ISO/IEC 19761, ISO/IEC 20926, ISO/IEC 20968 and ISO/IEC 24570. NOTE An FSMM is a software sizing method that conforms to the mandatory requirements of ISO/IEC 14143-1. Recommending a specific FSMM is outside the scope of this part of ISO/IEC 14143.
The audiences of this part of ISO/IEC 14143 are: - users and potential users of FSM; and - developers of an FSMM.
