Abstract : The principal aim of the Ada effort is economic - particularly the enhancement of designer/programmer productivity in all parts of the software life-cycle. A shift in system design practice to widespread use of off-the-shelf large scale Ada software components would result in productivity gains exceeding a factor of ten - far more than likely to result from use of productivity enhancing software tools. To achieve widespread use of off-the-shelf Ada components requires establishment of a software components industry, and a shift in attitudes about education of system designers to use Ada. This paper reviews progress to date. (Author)
