Systems and software engineering — Lifecycle profiles for Very Small Entities (VSEs) — Part 5-1-3: Software engineering — Management and engineering guide: Generic profile group — Intermediate profile (Adopted ISO/IEC TR 29110-5-1-3:2017, first edition, 2017-02)
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).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document provides management and engineering guide to the intermediate profile described in terms of business management, project management, software implementation and acquisition processes.
This document is applicable to Very Small Entities (VSEs). VSEs are enterprises, organizations, departments or projects having up to 25 people. The life cycle processes described in the ISO/IEC 29110 series are not intended to preclude or discourage their use by organizations bigger than VSEs.
ISO/IEC 29110–4-1 identifies the requirements applicable to the tasks and work products described in this document.
This document has been developed using the management and engineering guide of the Basic profile and by modifying and adding elements (e.g. process, task, work product, role) for VSEs involved in the development of more than one project in parallel with more than one work team.
This document applies for VSEs developing non-critical software.
Using this document, VSEs can obtain the following benefits:
— the management and monitoring of more than one project in parallel with more than one work team;
— reuse existing software components (e.g. code and document) in new projects;
— continuously measure projects and improve processes.
Once the software, developed by a VSE, has been accepted by their customers, the VSE that wants to provide after delivery services can refer to ISO/IEC TR 29110-5-3.1)
This document is targeted to VSEs which are familiar with ISO/IEC TR 29110-5-1-2 for their software development projects and are involved in the development of more than one project in parallel with more than one work team.
This document is intended to be used with any lifecycles, processes, techniques and methods that enhance the VSEs customer satisfaction and productivity.
