    An SW substructure (1) may include one or several SW Modules, Databases or SW Components. An SW substructure may also contain dummies (stubs or drivers). These dummies will be replaced by iterated runs through SD 7.1-SW "Integration into SW Component"-at the latest, however, when being integrated into the SW Unit-by the corresponding operational SW Modules. During each execution of this activity, a new SW substructure of a higher integration level is created from one or several given SW substructures. This can be achieved by For integrational purposes it might become necessary to generate code or to write procedures in addition to the available SW Modules.

    The SW Components must then be submitted to a self-assessment (SD7.2 - Self-Assessment of SW Component) one by one. When doing this, the SW Component may still include dummies.


    The order of the SW Modules, Databases, and SW Components in the product structure suggests a bottom-up integration strategy. However, this is only one of several possible methods. Other examples for integration strategies are: The SW substructure is apparent only for a certain period of time during the SD7 - SW Integration. It is a temporary construction which allows SW Integration according to arbitrary strategies. The end of the SW Integration is the SW Unit, with its structuring into SW Components and SW Modules or Databases.

    The individual steps of the SW Integration have been set up in the Integration Plan.

    (1) An SW substructure is an interim product that only occurs with activity SD7.1 - Integration into SW Component and thus is not integrated into another activity.
