Abstract:

This report is one of a series of Software Acquisition Management SAM guidebooks which provide information and guidance for ESD Program Office personnel who are charged with planning and managing the acquisition of command, control, and communications system software procured under Air Force 800 series regulations and related software acquisition management concepts. The scope of this document is limited to those acquisition and development activities, occurring throughout the SAM cycle, which impact software maintenance. It includes discussions of system turnover to the using command and the transfer of program management responsibility to the supporting command. The computer program life cycle is also considered. Most of the information provided in this report covers the implementing commands responsibilities during the SAM cycle. However, software maintenance during the Deploymnet Phase is also discussed to provide the background for proper planning. Current programming concepts are discussed as well as the military regulations, specifications, and standards. Within these constraints, this report emphasizes what the Program Office can do to specify and procure maintainable software, including procurement of the facilities, support tools, and documentation necessary to support software maintenance activities.
