 ISO Standard for Software Revisions

Does anyone know if there exists a standard for Software Revision
Identification within either ISO, IEC, ANS or IEEE or similar standards.

The method seems to use:

       M,mmm,ttt

where:

M - is a Major modification of the fundamental functionality of the software.

mmm - is a minor modification to the documented functionality making previous
versions incompatible in use.

ttt - is a trivial modification which maintains the documented functionality
(ie: bug fixes etc.)

This method of marking is cropping up in so many places it seems that it must
be in a standard somewhere (I have even seen different categories for each
section of the encoding).

Thanks in advance.
