The software supportability and reliability site

SAE G-11 (RMSL) Software Committee        


The SAE G-11 RMSL Software Committee (G-11SW) belongs to the SAE G-11 Reliability, Maintainability, Supportability and Logistics (RSML) Division. This committee will develop and promote emerging RMSL principles, processes, technologies, and standards to further improve their application to the software component of systems. The SAE G-11 Software Committee should be a leader in developing and promoting software RMSL principles, processes, technologies, and standards for use by international industries and governments.

The G-11SW group was organized in March 1994. G-11SW now consists of approximately 40 participants and 20 full members. The membership is from the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, France, Canada, Germany, Belgium, and Israel.
