What does SRS stand for?

I just bought a 2003 GT convertable and on the dash and steering wheel it has SRS on it. I assume that this is some sort of option package but don't know what in includes.
Please Explain
Thanks in advance

Re: What doe's SRS stand for?

Supplemental Restraint System.

It means you have airbags.

Re: What doe's SRS stand for?

My ex mother in law told me about how they rented a special edition mustang SRS. I tried to hold it in...but I just couldn't. I asked them if their 300M was also a special edition SRS since it said SRS as well. lol Needless to say, my EX mother in law didn't like me...and is really about 90% of why she is classified as EX.

Re: What doe's SRS stand for?

ok now if I could get this kind of a response to: Should I go with a 2 1/2 H-pipe and O2 eleiminators? New shifter, 3:73 gear and short throw shifter?
Hay Maybe SRS stands for short reach shifter.

Here either.

Our process is..."We need to create an application to do this. Do it and let me know when you are done."

No user specs, no design specs, no requirements, no coding standards...just a general statement of what the program is needed for. Coming from a CMM Level 3 world to this is a major culture shock.

Re: What doe's SRS stand for?

we do spec documents here and have a design team etc etc and a quality assurance group as well~

the kicker though... the person who was over the development team made the programmers remove comments and not comment code etc etc... thus its a cluster**** trying to understand code....

on top of that they use global var's everywhere EVERYWHERE... they are really working on it now ... but man... what a PITA.

Places that dont take the time to design what they are going to do pay the price later on.... (unless its a super small design or business)

When I was at SCI, it was polar opposite of this, too. Over there they are real big on the whole traditional design path...with requirement spec docs, design spec docs, software test docs, and all that ****. It's awfully nice not to have to do any documentation...but the lack thereof can cause problems from time to time.

Re: What doe's SRS stand for?

maintaining your software is more expensive than developing it most of the time, this is why keeping great records and making for good development habits are useful.

Are you 100% positive it's Supplemental Restraint System? 'Cause I'm just not buying it...

BTW, Markuz and Smurfin... you guys suck. We're CMMI Level 3 currently and our goal is to be 5 early next year. We have to have 100% traceability from every single customer requirement to something in the final product that demonstrates each one...

That's just like we were at SCI. We were writing software for the audio units in military aircraft. Software that had to work and was going to do something for quite a long time.

A great deal of the **** I've been doing now is scripting stuff. We'll get the data for manuals from the companies that build military hardware. They'll have that **** all tagged up in XML or some bull****. Then we have documentation people look at it and figure out how to make it work in the manual reader. They'll come to me and be like "when you see this tag, insert this...when you see this sequence of tags, insert this...etc...etc...etc...". Then I'll code 'em up a little program that tweaks their ****, it'll get used for a week or two, and then it is forgotten.
