Section 4.4 Tool Planning Process and activities

4.3 Tool Planning Process Objectives
c. Identify the tool development life cycle environment, including the methods and tools to be used for the activities of each tool life cycle process.
4.4 Tool Planning Process Activities
c.The tool development life cycle environment(s) should be defined. The verification environment(s) should be shown to be representative of the tool operational environment. Care should be taken to identify the operating system, additional hardware, additional software components, etc. It should be noted that it may be necessary to have several tool verification environments if there are potentially multiple tool operational environments (for example, a tool may be used on multiple platforms with different versions of operating systems, depending on the specific operational needs).
