Let’s look at some IEEE Standards in this tutorial. IEEE stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.
IEEE is an international organization founded in 1884. IEEE consists of dozens of specialized societies within geographical regions throughout the world. IEEE is led by elected and appointed volunteer members. The operations structure includes boards for operational areas and bodies representing members in the 47 Societies and Technical Councils.
These standards are created through obtaining the consensus of practicing professionals. This consensus process, which includes careful discussion and debate among members of the various committees who serve voluntarily, is one of the fundamental themes of the standards process. Another key theme is to provide standards in a timely manner, from project approval to standard approval, which is approximately 3 years.
829-1998: IEEE Standard for Software Test Documentation
730-1998: IEEE Standard for Software Quality Assurance Plans
1008-1987 (R1993): IEEE Standard for Software Unit Testing (ANSI)
1012-1998: IEEE Standard for Software Verification and Validation
Software testing standards are developed within the technical committees of the IEEE Societies and the Standards Coordinating Committees of the IEEE Standards Board.
