The requirement for highly reliable software increases with every year. The benefits from the use of computers are so great that applications multiply to the extent that large sectors of modern society are totally dependent on their use. This dependence brings with it a vulnerability to serious damage if the software should fail: we are now entering an era in which software failures could have life-threatening consequences. This vulnerability compels the use of software techniques which will largely eliminate errors and it is the purpose of this book to describe some of these techniques and to set them into the context of the procurement process.
