4.2.6 Related Data Item Descriptions.
DOD-STD-21 67A is the parent standard for 16 Data Item Descriptions. Each DID specifies the required content for a particular deliverable document. Selection of appropriate DIDs and deletion of inappropriate content within those DIDs is a key part of the tailoring process. The DOD-STD-21 67A DID Selection Guidelines Worksheet in Appendix B lists the DOD-STD-21 67A DIDs, summarizes each DIDs purpose and use, and provides selection guidelines. DIDs for the Engineering Change Proposal and Specification Change Notice are cited in DOD-STD-21 67A but invoked from the referenced standards discussed in paragraph 4.2.5 of this handbook.

4.2.7 “Shell requirements”.
DOD-STD-21 67A maintains a number of requirements whose specifics must be provided in the contract. These “shell requirements” serve a three-fold purpose in the standard: (1) to remind the Government program manager to consider and resolve issues critical to software development (2) to make the standard self-tailoring; and (3) to provide a method for incorporating applicable program specific requirements in the contract. Figure 2 presents these requirements.
