Initial[edit]

ISO/IEC 12207 – Information Technology – Software Life Cycle Process Published in 1995, this is an international standard that covers the software life cycle from inception till retirement. It contains a framework that for managing, controlling and improving software life cycle activities. The standard describes the major processes of software life cycle, how the processes interface with each other and a high-level relation that govern their interactions. For each process, the standard also describes the activities and tasks involved, defining specific responsibilities and identifying activities of the tasks. Since it is a high-level standard, it does not detail how to perform the tasks or activities. The 17 processes covered in this standard are grouped in three categories.

1) Primary Process a. Acquisition Process b. Supply Process c. Development Process d. Operation Process e. Maintenance Process

2) Supporting Process a. Documentation Process b. Configuration Process c. Quality Assurance Process d. Verification Process e. Validation Process f. Joint Review Process g. Audit Process h. Problem Resolution Process

3) Organization Process a. Management Process b. Infrastructure Process c. Improvement Process d. Training Process

Target Audience 1) Organizations acquiring system that contain software 2) Organizations that supply software products 3) Organizations involved in software operations or software maintenance —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 59.160.169.17 (talkcontribs) 17:55, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

Looks like IEEE 12207 is the same. Luis F. Gonzalez 00:50, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

IEEE 12207 is essentially the IEEE's adoption of ISO/IEC 12207, with a bit more guidance on implementation. In the way most people view it, I think, ISO 12207 has evolved into IEEE 12207. Gordon Long 13:45, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

IEEE 12207 and ISO 12207 should definitely be merged – there is no reason for two separate articles. The two topics can be mentioned as sections within the same article, which I suggest is the international one. -- MightyWarrior 14:28, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Above comments are all out of date now that ISO/IEC 12207:2008 and IEEE 12207:2008 have been adopted, and are essentially the identical same standard. Per talk comment on the IEEE 12207 page: IEEE 12207 nee IEEE 12207.0 is outdated and superseded. IEEE 12207:2008 is the current standard and is the same as ISO 12207, which in that article actually refers to ISO/IEC 12207:2008. References: http://www.12207.com/12207-news.htm, http://www.acm.org/tsc/lifecycle.html, http://www.math.unipd.it/~tullio/IS-1/2009/Approfondimenti/ISO_12207-2008.pdf. ISO 12207 should be updated to fully reflect the 2008 merger of the two standards, and should incorporate (merge) the IEEE 12207 verbiage. The IEEE 12207 page should be removed, or be retitled 12207.0 and clearly reflect that it discusses an old, out of date document. 216.243.176.75 (talk) 18:02, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Disposal Phase[edit]

One does not normally think of a disposal phase when it come to software - it's not like it will fill up landfills or have other environmental impact. Yet software can have lasting value. Think of it as having the last word in a piece of history. It is not required, although prudent to capture source code and a description of functional capability of a system artifact. Take for example, the Apollo moon landings. Does the software still exist to allow mankind to re-create the conditions that helped land us on the moon? Despite advances in technology, it remains a hard problem. New business opportunities can still exist in old code.--96.244.247.130 (talk) 01:39, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
