dc.description.abstractAll sectors of society are confronted with what has been termed the "software crisis." As the world's largest single buyer of software, the Department of Defense has undertaken major software initiatives to ameliorate software-related problems associated with major computer systems acquisition. This thesis provides an overview of common problems in both embedded and administrative software development and acquisition. It defines quality software in terms of its characteristics, and provides the project manager/acquisition agency with a set of accepted controls to assure that quality is built in to software for improved maintainability. The difficulties and limitations of providing accurate estimates in software development are discussed in terms of software metrics. A number of DoD current and future standardization efforts are discussed, including the Army's development of a Military Computer Family (MCF) , Ada, and the STARS initiative.
