In the area of software quality assurance and software development a series of approaches like ISO-9003, CMM and SPICE have been developed for larger companies. A problem of implementing these industrial approaches for small and medium business (SMB) exists, because the “big approach” cannnot easily be adapted for smaller organisations.
Due to software practice and experience through many years, ISM has developed a set of tools and methods for the documentation of software developments. The basic idea is to document the whole application source code and link the documents. The basic advantages are:
- use of open source tools
- publication of the complete system for the customer's programmers
