SMM 1.2 RTF Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

SMM12 — SMM Introduction Overview clause is too software measures centric.

  • Key: SMM12-138
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Larry Hines)
  • Summary:

    The following phrases set too much software emphasis in Clause 7.1.

    • First paragraph in its entirity: "Measurements provide data for disciplined engineering in that engineers and their managers rely on these comparable evaluations in assessing the static and operational qualities of systems."
    • Second paragraph: Totally software-dedicated..
    • Third paragraph of 7.1: here it seems a bit broader than software alone, but it is still about technical architectures, and nobody will think about business architectures here.
    • Fourth paragraph of 7.1: It talks about systems. But who will think about businesses as systems here ? Nobody, unless we give some hints of that. Because all other hints here and elsewhere are only about software

  • Disposition Summary:

    Generalize introduction beyond software measures

    Integral revision of Overview, by:

    • Removing last sentence (starting with "All initial depictions") from seventh paragraph.
