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 Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 14143-1-01 (adoption of ISO/IEC 14143-1:1998). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 14143-1:2007 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The CSA TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the CSA Information Products catalogue or CSA Info Update or contact a CSA Sales representative. 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 defines the fundamental concepts of Functional Size Measurement (FSM). This part of ISO/IEC 14143 does NOT provide detailed rules on how to:
- measure Functional Size of software using a particular method;
- use the results obtained from a particular method;
- select a particular method.
This part of ISO/IEC 14143 is applicable when determining if a method for sizing software is an FSM Method. It does not prevent the development of various methods, but rather provides a basis for assessing whether a particular method conforms to FSM.
This part of ISO/IEC 14143 is intended for use by those persons associated with the acquisition, development, use, support, maintenance and audit of software.
