Just received news from Rich Hilliard via the IEEE 1471 Users List (to become the “ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 Users List):

Today I was notified that IEEE P42010 was approved as a revised standard by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on 31 October 2011.

This standard replaces IEEE 1471:2000 and is identical to the ISO standard approved in July with 21 approvals and 0 disapprovals from member bodies.

The new standard, designated ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010:2011, Systems and software engineering—Architecture description, is available from IEEE and ISO.

The IEEE 1471 website will become the ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 website.

The old website will redirect to the new URL which is:

Looking at the website I noticed

Per IEEE rules: An approved IEEE standard will remain active for   ten years. If the Sponsor does not complete a revision process   within ten years, the standard will be transferred to inactive   status.

Curious to know whether this means a standard has to be revised or whether the requirement is simply to review - it might still be a perfectly good standard even if it hasn’t been revised since the decision might be on review that it’s good enough.

Having to say ISO/IEC/IEEE every time is a bit of a mouthfull and therefore inevitably will be shortened in everyday use. Is there an acceptable shortform(s) e.g. ISO 42010, IEC 42010 and IEEE 42010? It’s unlikely in speech that the full qualification will be used.

I am trying to find the latest version of the standard on the ISO and IEEE websites but can’t really find it. Where can i find the last version?

Kind Regards

There is a working version which is prior to the published one at http://www.iso-architecture.org/ieee-1471/docs/ISO-IEC-IEEE-latest-draft-42010.pdf. This was circulated for comment at one point. I expect, however, that this will be removed now that the standard is formally available. There may be some differences. As ever with these things you expect to have to buy a copy (unless your company / educational institute has some licensing arrangement).
