Documentation Standards

Document List

The software development cycle is well known and understood in the computer industry, yet few companies follow any form of documentation standards or procedures. Each project is accompanied by a new set of documents that often miss some important points. The standards compiled here discuss aspects of design and development and form the foundation for documents to be produced for any given project.

Included are documents on configuration management, quality assurance, proposals, requirement specifications, design guides for Visual Basic and Access and many forms for time keeping, meetings, project builds, budgets, change requests, problem reports, etc.
