ISO IEC 14143-2:2011 pdf – Information technology -Software measurement—Functional size measurement Part 2: Conformity evaluation of software size measurement methods to lSO/IEC 14143-1.
NOTE The prccess for evaluating the conformity of a Candidate FSM Method requires the uruque edentilcation of both the Candidate FSM Method and of the version being evaluated. This identification requires Information that is not essential to the measurement of softwe size. Therefore, this part of ISO1IEC 14143 introduces exckjsrve requrements wtiich are not present in ISOIIEC 14143-1. but which are deemed essential to the conformity evatualion process. That is. a Candidate FSM Method does not have to uniquely identify its documentation ii order to be an FSM Method However, m order for the conformity evaluation process to be auditable, the report must be able to uniquely identify the Candidate FSM Method documentation that was evaluated, This will only be possible if the Candidate FSM Method conforms to the requirements of this clause,
4.4.3 ConformIty evaluation plan
The conformity evaluation team shall develop the conformity evaluation plan in consultation with the evaluation sponsor. At a minimum, it shall include the following:
a) activities, schedule and resources required for the conformity evaluation process;
b) list of inputs that unéquely Identifies each of the inputs to the conformity evaluation process;
c) names and contact details of the conformity evaluation team members;
d) name and contact details of the evaluator organization, in the case of third party assessment;
e) name(s) and contact details of the evaluation sponsor(s);
1) roles and responsibilities of all persons involved in the conformity evaluation process;
9) relationship of the conformity evaluation team members and the evaluator organization to any other parties involved.
4.4.4 ConformIty evaluation procedure
The conformity evaluation team should develop the conformity evaluation procedure in consultation with the evaluation sponsor. The conformity evaluation procedure shall provide detailed descriptions of:
a) each of the tasks and steps to be performed by the conformity evaluation team and the evaluation sponsor as part of the conformity evaluation procedure (refer Section 4.5);
b) how the inputs are used within the conformity evaluation procedure to produce the conformity evaluation Output.
4.4.5 ConformIty evaluation checklist
18.104.22.168 The conformity evaluation team should develop the conformity evaluation checklist in consultation with the evaluation sponser. They may use as a basis for their checklist, an existing checklist- such as the one provided in Annex B. The conformity evaluation checklist shall Consist of a set of evaluation questions that can be used to evaluate the Candidate FSM Method against all the requirements of ISO1IEC 14143-1. The conformity evaluation checklist may also include a set of additional evaluation questions that can be used to evaluate the Candidate FSM Method against all the recommendations of ISO1IEC 14143-1. When detecmm.ng the conformity of a Candidate FSM Method, the conformity evaluation team shall use only the responses to evaluation questions relating to the requirements of lSOlEC 14143-1. The conformity evaluation team shall decide the appropriate structure and presentation of the conformity evaluation checklist.
NOTE Annex B contains an example of a conformity evaluation checklist that satisfies the requirements of this part of ISOIEC 14143 by providing checks for the requirements of ISOI’IEC 14143-1. It also exceeds these by providing checks for the recommendations of ISOIIEC 14143-1.
22.214.171.124 The conformity evaluation checklist shall be structured so that:
a) it contains evaluation questions that correspond to each of the requirements of ISO/IEC 14143-1, against which the characteristics of the Candidate FSM Method are evaluated,
b) each requirement corresponds to at least one evaluation question.
c) it includes a matrix that cross-refe’enoes each requirement of ISO/IEC 14143-1 to the corresponding evaluation questions, and
d) the set of evaluation questions that correspond to a particular requirement fully evaluate all aspects of that requirement,
NOTE I ISOIIEC 14143-1 contains a set of requirements against which the confomwly evaiation team evaluates the Candidate FSM Method, but the structure of ISO?IEC 14143-1 does not facilitate an efliclent confomaty evaluation, The conformity evaluation checklist intended to provide a more effective mechanism for evaluating the conformity of a Candidate FSM Method to ISOIIEC 14143-I The checklist does this by providing a set of evaluation questions for which there are clear and simple responses, such as yes’ or no To support a complete evaluation for each requirement W ISO1PEC 14143-I. there muat be at least one evakiation question m the checklist that evaluates the Candidate FSM Method against that requirement. To evaluate conforniity to a pathcul requiement. the checklist may contain several evaluation questions.
