Please find the referenced sites that I call on weekly to find
related to ISO compliancy (along with Ralph's book), and the new
life cycle processes (12207). Hopefully, the information from all of
these sites should help you in your research. Design, shells, and
templates are still left to the TC/TW. Personally, I refer back to
McConnell's forms (free) on his site (Construx). I modify them for my
needs. From doing this, our software development project manager went
to get his book and are now following some of their project planning
methodology. If someone would ever do a set of templates for all
of ISO/IEEE documentation, they would have a gold mine....any
To answer the one question about CALS - (computer -assisted logistics
system) CALS was replaced by MIL STDs 498 from what I understand. Now
has replaced 498s with ISO/IEEE 12207.
