A comprehensive standard of software quality is needed for all types of DII COE-based development. The availability of a repeatable, easy to use, valid process that cites objective measures will greatly improve both the assessments and their certainty. The need to develop this type of assessment is emphasized by the changes in acquisition policies which have removed the traditional avenues used for directing and encouraging improvements in the practices used to develop quality software within the military.
