Proposals for the SWEBOK evolution process from the viewpoint of ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC7 standardization activities at the SWEBOK Evolution Town Hall meeting on Aug 25.

  1. 1. Proposals for the SWEBOK evolution process from the viewpoint of ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC7 standardization activities Hironori Washizaki Professor, Waseda University ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC7/WG20 convenor washizaki@wasedaj.jp Juan Garbajosa Professor, Technical University of Madrid (UPM) SWEBOK co-editor, ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC7/WG20 former convenor jgs@etsisi.upm.es SWEBOK Town Hall Meeting, 25 Aug 2016 ver 1.2 1
  2. 2. Contents • Brief introduction of SC7/WG20 • Evolution process involving SC7/WG20 • Alignment with SC7 standards going beyond technical concepts • Eligibility criteria for knowledge areas based on market recognition • Conclusion 2
  3. 3. ISO/IEC standards within SC7 3 Adapted from https://sites.google.com/site/isoiecjtc1sc7/ WG20
  4. 4. WG20 - Software and Systems Bodies of Knowledge and Professionalization • Specifying requirements for high quality BoKs and helping experts create specific BoKs with high quality – Cooperation in the production and ISO-adoption of BOKs incl. SWEBOK (ISO/IEC TR 19759), SEBOK, PABOK, ITBOK … – Guide to produce a high quality BoK • Specifying requirements for high quality certification and qualifications, and helping scheme bodies – Revision of ISO/IEC 24773 (Certification of SWE professionals ― Comparison framework) as conformance standard – Monitor schemes and encourage bodies to use 24773 4
  5. 5. Evolution process involving SC7/WG20 • Problem: lacking active involvement of WG20 – WG20 had almost the same opportunity as public review – Time given turned out to be short for a careful review from the viewpoint of standardization. • Solution: process and mechanisms for tight/frequent interaction between SWEBOK team and WG20 – Wiki to share ideas and process comments online – Rigorous on-line procedure for disposing comments 5 SC7/WG20 Adapted from https://sites.google.com/site/isoiecjtc1sc7/ https://www.computer.org/web/swebok https://www.iconfinder.com/icons/437925/mirror_wiki_wikipedia_icon Comment Disposition
  6. 6. Alignment with SC7 standards • Problem: SWEBOK is not fully aligned with ISO docs – “IEEE CS has established two international certification programs (CSDA, CSDP)”? CSDA was NOT a certification! – Append. introduces IEEE and ISO standards. But not enough. • Solution – Tight and frequent interaction between the SWEBOK team and SC7/WG20 – Mapping of SC7 standards concepts and practices at a lower granularity level: incl. 12207, 15288, new 24773 – New 24773: I. General Requirements, II. Description Guidance, III. SE, IV. SWE 6 ISO/IEC 12207 ISO/IEC 15288 ISO/IEC 24773 ・・・ Lifecycle Process Certification
  7. 7. Eligibility criteria for knowledge areas based on market recognition • Problem: lacking fast reaction and decision- making mechanisms – “The purpose is to describe portion of BOK that is generally accepted, … ”. Generally accepted? • Solution: define criteria that facilitates decision- making process for choosing knowledge area – Number of job positions offered in last years – Industrial rigor and relevance for industry – Identification of a minimum number of topics in which the area can be broke down – Existence of standards – Teaching material available (textbooks…) 7
  8. 8. Conclusion • Recommendations for supporting SWEBOK evolution from SC7-standardization viewpoint – Evolution process involving SC7/WG20 – Alignment with SC7 standards – Eligibility criteria for knowledge areas based on market recognition • Towards a continuous evolution 8 ISO/IEC 12207 ISO/IEC 15288 ISO/IEC 24773 ・・・
