A.9 Custom Project Software

This section provides information regarding your custom software project. This information can be obtained only by analyzing your own software. This isn't meant to be a complete description of such software. It is expected that your team has its own internal documentation regarding the project's architecture and internals. This worksheet section is really just a summary meant to provide a bird's eye view of how your custom software interacts with the rest of the system. Table A-9 describes each field in the "Custom project software" section.
