The systems and software engineering disciplines, techniques, and processes have vastly advanced during past decades. The progress is so rapid that terminology is updated in different domains simultaneously, which allows more definitions representing the same thing or unambiguous definitions leading to misunderstanding and faults in designs. Different standards cope with this problem by identifying terms used in the field of information technology and by providing definitions for these terms. Even though such vocabularies and glossaries include clearly defined terms, they either provide several different but similar meanings for different topics or do not include terms that are newly introduced in current research projects. This document was prepared to collect terms used specifically in the context of the VALU3S project and to unify or narrow down their definitions.
The vocabulary is continuously updated during the development of the VALU3S project. This document is the first version consisting of terms with definitions already agreed by the VALU3S consortium.
