SST Element Maturity Level (“EML”)

Elements in SST are categorized by a maturity level which describes their development state and level of testing. It is important to note that these levels communicate the confidence that the SST project and developers have in individual element and models whilst at the same time reflecting the leading edge nature of the elements being added to the toolkit. It is the responsibility of the element developer to provide and maintain the associated documentation and tests for each level.

There are five levels of readiness used for elements in the SST project:

After elements have been in the Level 5 state they are subject to be retired and are not expected to be included in any future SST releases or overnight build processes.
