DI-IPSC-81443A, DATA ITEM DESCRIPTION SOFTWARE USER MANUAL (SUM) (11 JAN 2000)., The Software User Manual (SUM) tells a hands-on software user how to install and use a Computer Software
Configuration Item (CSCI), a group of related CSCIs, or a software system or subsystem. It may also cover a particular
aspect of software operation, such as instructions for a particular position or task. The SUM is developed for software that is run by the user and has a user interface requiring on-line user input or
interpretation of displayed output. If the software is embedded in a hardware-software system, user manuals or
operating procedures for that system may make separate SUMs unnecessary.
