NOTE 1 Examples of Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP) include but are not limited to text processors, spreadsheets, database control software, graphics packages, software for technical, scientific or real-time embedded functions, human resources management software, sales management, smartphone application, freeware and web software such as generators of websites/pages. NOTE 2 Open source software is not part of Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP). This International Standard establishes: a) Quality requirements for Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP); b) Requirements for test documentation for the testing of Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP), including test plan, test description, and test results; NOTE The collection of documents for test is called “test documentation”. c) Instructions for conformity evaluation of Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP). It includes also recommendations for safety or business critical Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP). This International Standard deals only with providing the user with confidence that the Ready to Use Software Product (RUSP) will perform as offered and delivered.
