software component


ECSS-Q-ST-80C Rev.1


part of a software system


  • NOTE 1 Software component is used as a general term.
  • NOTE 2 Components can be assembled and decomposed to form new components. In the production activities, components are implemented as units, tasks or programs, any of which can be configuration items. This usage of the term is more general than in ANSI/IEEE parlance, which defines a component as a 'basic part of a system or program' in this Standard, components are not always 'basic' as they can be decomposed.
