16 Critical Software Practices

The SPMN was established in 1992 by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy to identify proven industry and government software best practices and convey these practices to managers of large-scale DoD system acquisition programs. The SPMN 16 Critical Software Practices specifically address underlying cost and schedule drivers that have caused many software intensive systems to be delivered over budget, behind schedule and with significant performance shortfalls.
