The IEEE standard for software verification and validation plans provides a useful framework for assuring the maintainability of software. The standard can apply to both critical and noncritical software efforts, regardless of previous development history. The standard provides direction for the management and administration of tasks required for software verification and validation. It takes into account that, for a software maintenance effort, some project documentation required to perform these tasks may not be available. Descriptions of the standard and of software maintenance from a software-verification and validation perspective are given, as well as two examples of improved software maintainability from application of the standard.<
