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).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 14143-6 throughout.
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 14143-6-07 (adoption of ISO/IEC 14143-6:2006). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 14143-6:14 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This part of ISO/IEC 14143 provides a summary of the FSM-related standards and the relationship between;
a) the ISO/IEC 14143 series FSM framework International Standards that provide the definitions and concepts of FSM, and conformity and verification of FSMMs, and
b) the ISO/IEC standard FSMMs, i.e. ISO/IEC 19761, ISO/IEC 20926, ISO/IEC 20968, ISO/IEC 24570 and ISO/IEC 29881.
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 providing guidance on how to use FS. FSMMs include, but are not limited to, ISO/IEC 19761, ISO/IEC 20926, ISO/IEC 20968, ISO/IEC 24570 and ISO/IEC 29881.
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.
