IEEE 829

Definition - What does IEEE 829 mean?

IEEE 829 is a standard for software testing by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) that specifies all the stages of software testing and documentation at each stage. IEEE 829 defines the standards for software analysis and citations.

IEEE 829 is also known as the IEEE Standard for Software and System Test Documentation.

Techopedia explains IEEE 829

IEEE 829 is responsible for defining rules and regulations for each step in the software testing process and how to write documentation for each step. The stages involved in software testing and reporting are:

  • Test plan
  • Test design specification
  • Test case specification
  • Test procedure specification
  • Test item transmittal report
  • Test log
  • Test incident report
  • Test summary report

IEEE has devised different rules of documentation for each stage, and failure to comply leads to failure to grant IEEE certifications to the software in question.
