Software is the most expensive aspect of computer systems. It also has the potential to have the greatest adverse impact on the system. This thesis examines the role of software standards in the early development phases of requirements analysis and design. Both the costs and benefits associated with the use of standards are evaluated. Tools and techniques that support the use of standards are identified and evaluated for use in producing software that is usable and maintainable. Current Navy software development guidelines are identified and evaluated with respect to current industry practices. The analysis indicates that software standards are essential in the development life cycle. Navy guidelines do mandate the use of such standards in the development of mission critical computer software. The importance of frequent reviews and the use of supporting tools and techniques is emphasized.
