Re: Extending current ISO 9001 registration scope to cover SW development
They're just wanting some assurance that software folks don't push out a release without proper vetting. This would include:
* independent verification (testing)
* independence in configuration management
* independence in change management
(There may be others, these just jumped to mind)
These do require a skillset that incorporates "software awareness" (i.e., they don't have to be coders but they need to understand things like unit testing, software architecture, software configuration management, etc.).
