The purpose of this effort was to investigate and develop techniques to reduce the procurement cost and increase the reliability and timeliness of complex computer software. Specific goals of the program were to study and define a Software-First Machine SOFM, determine to what extent the technique of Structured Programming is beneficial in the testing of software and contributes to the reliability of software, and provide the Air Force with initial guideance in the area of software reliability. This report presents an overview of the technological background common to the six tasks of project 522A, a part of MITRE Project 5220. Besides discussing general background, this volume provides an introduction to each of the other seven volumes of the entire report.
