Executive Summary

The causes of the failure or significant cost/schedule overruns of complex embedded software-intensive systems projects almost always involve a combination of management issues and technical issues. This paper focuses on the technical issues of such complex embedded software-intensive systems across multiple domains, including avionics, spacecraft flight systems, and command & control systems. Having served for many years as senior reviewers and/or consultants on many complex embedded systems, the authors have witnessed that in many cases major difficulties have often been caused by a relatively small number of complex and difficult hardware and especially software problems. In many cases however, solutions to these problems are known, but only by a relatively small number of experts.
