A Category is the highest level element in the TRIMS database. It is a broad area of interest for defining a process or a development stage (e.g., Design or Test). Categories will be produced by determining the areas to be investigated. They will reflect well-established areas of interest in the I&I community. For example, for I&I, several areas, such as Human Factors, Program Interaction (Programmatic), and Standards have been suggested. The Appendix gives a suggested list of Categories and several subordinate Templates for I&I risk assessment.
