Abstract : 'Software Engineering' is concerned with developing software systems that satisfy the requirements of the user over the whole life of the system; a SEE assists the accomplishment of software engineering through sets of computer facilities, integrated software tools, and uniform engineering procedures. The term 'weapon system software' inherently implies a concern with software for embedded computer systems and support over the entire life cycle. Among the aims of a SEE are to increase productivity, support development of reproducible software and promote standardization of software and software development methods. The industrialization of computer hardware is already successful in these areas; the SEE will enable a similar industrialization of computer software.
