Document Scope
The purpose of the Software Assurance and Software Safety Standard is to define the requirements to implement a systematic approach to Software Assurance (SA), software safety, and Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) for software created, acquired, provided, or maintained by or for NASA. Various personnel in the program, project, or facility, and Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) organizations can perform the activities required to satisfy these requirements. The Software Assurance and Software Safety Standard provides a basis for personnel to perform software assurance, software safety, and IV&V activities consistently throughout the life of the software, that is, from its conception, through creation to operations and maintenance, and until the software is retired.
