ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 was first established in 1987, though the origins of the subcommittee began with ISO/TC 97, established in 1960 as a standardization technical committee in the field of information processing. With the formation of ISO/IEC JTC 1 in 1987, ISO/TC 97 and IEC/TC 83 were combined to form ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7, Software Engineering.[2] In 2000, the subcommittee changed its title from Software Engineering to its current title, Software and Systems Engineering.[3] ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 held its first plenary in Paris, France in 1987.[2]

The scope of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 is the “Standardization of processes, supporting tools and supporting technologies for the engineering of software products and systems,” including

  • Software and systems engineering processes
  • Software system products
  • Enterprise architecture
  • Software engineering environment
  • Software engineering body of knowledge
  • Management of IT assets

The mission of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 is to

  • Provide quality standards that cover the entire life-cycle of information systems
  • Provide quality standards that meet user needs in broad markets
  • Manage the set of standards effectively through documented framework
  • Promote the use of standards by providing supporting materials
  • Provide leadership in standardization through:
    • A continuous technology watch process using Study Groups to explore new areas and markets
    • The development of a comprehensive set of integrated standards with broad international and professional consensus
    • Initiating cooperative work with international professional and standards producing organizations
    • A framework that:
      • Facilitates the integration and sub-contracting of standards developed in other standards producing organizations
      • Facilitates cooperative development of joint standards with other international standards producing organizations
      • Minimizes the inconsistencies between ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 7 standards, including those developed by other standards producing organizations
