IEEE Std 830-1998 -Software Requirements Specifications


I thought I should call your attention to International standard IEEE 830-1998.  It's a standard for software requirements specifications.

IEEE Std 830-1998 IEEE Recommended Practice for Software Requirements Specifications

IEEE have created standards on a range of engineering disciplines from networking to nuclear power.
