About

Scope

SC7 delivers standards in the area of software and systems engineering that meet market and professional requirements. These standards convers the processes, supporting tools and supporting technologies for the engineering of software products and systems. Systems engineering, whose origin is traceable to industrial engineering, is defined as an interdisciplinary approach governing the total technical and managerial effort required to transform a set of customer needs, expectations, and constraints into a solution and to support that solution throughout its life. SC7, whose scope is Software and Systems Engineering, can thus be described as a horizontal committee who produce generic standards that are technology agnostics and independent of the application domain. These standards are principally focused on process models and good practices (Methods and techniques).
