Systems and software engineering — Lifecycle profiles for Very Small Entities (VSEs) — Part 4-1: Software engineering - Profile specifications: Generic profile group (Adopted ISO/IEC 29110-4-1:2018, second edition, 2018-04)
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 SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) 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).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 29110-4-1 throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 29110-4-1:18 (adopted ISO/IEC 29110-4-1:2011). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 29110-4-1:2018 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
The ISO/IEC 29110 series is applicable to Very Small Entities (VSEs). VSEs are enterprises, organizations, departments or projects having up to 25 people. The lifecycle processes described in the ISO/IEC 29110 series are not intended to preclude or discourage their use by larger organizations than VSEs.
The lifecycle processes defined in the ISO/IEC 29110 series can be used by VSEs when using, as well as when creating and supplying, a software system. They can be applied at any level in a software system’s structure and at any stage in the lifecycle. The processes described in the ISO/IEC 29110 series are not intended to preclude or discourage the use of additional processes that VSEs find useful. This document is not intended to preclude the use of different life cycles such as: waterfall, iterative, incremental, evolutionary or agile.
This document provides a profile specification for the Basic profile. The Basic profile applies to VSEs involved in software development. It selects ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 project management and software implementation process elements from the single project perspective.
This document provides the normative and informative links to the subset of ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207.
