Abstract:

Volume 1 Executive Summary documents the activities and results of the Joint Logistics Commanders Software Reliability Work Group SRWG during the period August 1974 to October 1975. The SRWG investigated the acquisition policies, management procedures and supporting technology used by the Department of Defense in acquiring digital computer subsystems embedded in electromechanical systems such as aircraft, ships, missiles, spacecraft, automated command and control systems, and other electromechanical defense systems. The SRWGs summarized findings and recommendations are shown to form the basis for a newly proposed Department of Defense Weapon System Software Management Program, the highlights of which are included in this report. SRWG integration with the Applied Physics Laboratory of The Johns Hopkins University, and its interface with the Mitre Corporation in parallel studies are also described.
