Software development tasks are performed in accordance with engineering and quality standards. The utilization of these standards is required by external customers and is strongly recommended for the internal assignments, to maintain the investments in DLR development projects. DLR Software Standards is a system for supporting projects, with various software engineering and quality assurance measures, during their whole lifecycle. The range of these measures is optimized according to the characteristics of the project and the standards that shall be applied.
For each of the software engineering and quality assurance measures, the user gets additional information about its practical applications and background history. With this information, a software developer or project member is able to produce quality assurance documents, which conform to the applicable standards.
The system comprises of the following key functionalities:
The system is available to all DLR software developers and DLR Simulation and Software Technology is responsible for its maintenance and further developments.
