Abstract
Software development standards are integral to any organization's software development efforts and are essential to the development life cycle. They are vital in ensuring on-time delivery of more reliable and maintainable software products. The trend in software development is toward a structured, systems engineering approach based on standard practices, methodologies and rigorous management control. DOD-STD-2167A establishes uniform requirements for software development that are applicable throughout the system life cycle. It provides a basis for government insight into a contractor's software development, testing, and evaluation efforts. This thesis examines the possibility of developing a generic, tailored version of DOD-STD- 2167A that would apply to an activity's or general project category's software development needs. The analysis indicates that a tailored version of the standard can be developed to at least eliminate some requirements for a project manager when dealing with an activity's or project category's software requirements, thereby reducing superfluous and duplicative activities.
