CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 14598-1-02 (R2010)
ISO/IEC 14598 is intended for use by developers, acquirers and independent evaluators, particularly those responsible for software product evaluation. The evaluation results produced from the application of ISO/IEC 14598 can be used by managers and developers/maintainers to measure compliance to requirements and to make improvements where necessary. The evaluation results can also be used by analysts to establish the relationships between the internal and external metrics.
Process improvement personnel can use the evaluation results to determine how processes can be improved through study and examination of the project#s product quality information.
(1) Much of the guidance in ISO/IEC 14598 is not specific to software, but is also applicable to other complex products.
