The PSS family of standards was the ESA internal set of standards which was replaced by ECSS. It inluded a software engineering standard and a set of guides.
 
 
BSSC Software Engineering Books
 
The PSS knowledge was also translated in a less ESA specific style into books:
  • "Software Engineering Standards" contains the Software Engineering Standards (PSS-05-0) of the European Space Agency (ESA), modified to remove ESA-specific terminology. This generalised version was produced through ESA’s Technology Transfer Programme. The authors are: Carlo Mazza, Jon Fairclough, Bryan Melton, Daniel de Pablo, Adriaan Scheffer, Richard Stevens. Publisher : Prentice-Hall International (UK) Ltd. First published 1994 ISBN 0-13-106568-8
  • "Software Engineering Guides" contains the Software Engineering Guides (PSS-05-01 to PSS-05-11) of the European Space Agency (ESA), modified to remove ESA-specific terminology. This generalised version was produced through ESA’s Technology Transfer Programme. The authors are: Carlo Mazza, Jon Fairclough, Bryan Melton, Daniel de Pablo, Adriaan Scheffer, Richard Stevens, Michael Jones, Gianfranco Alvisi. Publisher : Prentice-Hall International (UK) Ltd. First published 1996 ISBN 0-13-449281-1
