The terms "DOD-STD-2167" and "DOD-STD-2168" (often mistakenly referred to as "MIL-STD-2167" and "MIL-STD-2168" respectively) are the official specification numbers for superseded U.S. DoD military standards describing documents and procedures required for developing military computer systems. Specifically: 
- DOD-STD-2167 described the necessary project documentation to be delivered when developing a "Mission-Critical" computer software system.
- DOD-STD-2168 was the DoD's software quality assurance standard, titled "Defense System Software Quality Program".
On December 5, 1994, the standards DOD-STD-2167A and DOD-STD-2168 were superseded by MIL-STD-498, and that document merged DOD-STD-2167A, DOD-STD-7935A, and DOD-STD-2168 into a single document, and incorporated changes to address vendor criticisms.
- MIL-STD-498 - standard which superseded DOD-STD-2167A and DOD-STD-2168
- DOD-STD-2167A - the succeeding revision
- Capability Maturity Model (CMM)
