U.S. Commercial Standard (US 12207-1996)
In August 1995, ISO/IEC 12207 was released as an approved international standard. The JISWG is adapting 12207 for United States use to include the technical content found in J-STD-016. The working group consists of representatives from commercial and government organizations.
US 12207-1996 will consist of ISO/IEC 12207 with additional materials.
The scope of ISO/IEC 12207 is broader than the scope of J-STD-016. J-STD-016-1995 focuses on the development process while ISO/IEC 12207 includes the acquisition, supply, operation, and maintenance processes. Consequently, the additional materials in US 12207-1996 focus on those areas where the two standards overlap, i.e., development and the supporting processes such as documentation, quality assurance, configuration management, and joint reviews.
IEEE/EIA 12207 (June 1998)
- Also called “US 12207” for historical reasons
- Represents a “tactical” implementation of ISO 12207
- Focus is on the organizational level rather than the project level
