The requirements of 9100 apply with the following clarification for software.
This standard supplements the 9100 standard requirements for deliverable software and contains quality management system requirements for organizations that design, develop, and/or produce deliverable software and services for the aviation, space, and defense industry. This includes, as required, support software that is used in the development and maintenance of deliverable software and services. The deliverable software may be stand-alone, embedded, mobile application, or loadable into a target computer.
This deliverable software may also be part of services (e.g., cloud environment, web hosted solutions or platforms).
Where the use of Hardware Description Language (HDL) or high order language is utilized as the design source of electronic hardware [e.g., Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), Programmable Logic Device (PLD)]; the organization and customer, and/or supplier shall agree on the extent of applicability of this supplement.
NOTE: For airborne electronic hardware guidance, see RTCA/DO-254 or EUROCAE ED-80. For operations requirements, see 9100 Section 8.
Where Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) or non-developmental software is integrated into a deliverable product, the organization and customer shall agree on the extent of applicability of this supplement.
For the purposes of this document, the terms “product” and “software product” are considered synonymous.
For the purposes of this document, the term “services” may be considered a product.
This standard supersedes the initial release of 9115 published in April 2010. This standard has been revised to incorporate the new clause structure and content of ISO 9001:2015. In addition, industry requirements, definitions, and notes have been revised in response to ISO 9001:2015 and 9100:2016 revisions and stakeholder needs.
This is the second revision of 9115 which is an international supplement to 9100 providing clarification of the corresponding 9100 requirements, as necessary, for deliverable software. In some cases, where clarification is needed, it was necessary due to the complexity of software to decompose “shall” statements in 9100 into more granular requirements. Where no software clarification is required of the 9100 requirements, the following phrase is presented: “The requirements of 9100 apply. No clarification required for software.”
NOTE: This document must be used in conjunction with 9100:2016; references throughout the text to 9100 are understood to mean 9100:2016.
