Abstract:

Software engineering is presented as a new branch of the engineering disciplines. The tools and techniques of the profession are examined in an attempt to resolve definitional ambiguities and describe the concepts or attitudes generally associated with three specific programming methodologies. Language properties supportive of the methodologies are investigated. The professional tools and language characteristics are evaluated in terms of their effect on DOD software.
