Abstract : This Advisory Report summarises the findings and conclusions of Working Group 10 of the Guidance and Control Panel of AGARD, the Terms of Reference which were: (1) To develop and consider a set of requirements for application software generators for guidance and control systems. (2) To evaluate the characteristics and capabilities offered by existing application software generator technology with respect to the requirements defined in (i). (3) If required, to determine the modifications and improvements necessary for such technology to meet the requirements defined in (i). The Working Group defined and investigated four approaches to software generation: reusable software modules, expert systems, programme transformation techniques and fourth generation languages.
