Comparing software systems developed today with systems developed some years ago, one can often observe an enormous increase in complexity. Consider the size of the systems: in the fifties programmers were content to solve mathematical equations or formulas with programs containing some hundred lines of code. Today, new software projects often involve many 100,000 lines of code, addressing complete factory automation or complicated weapon systems.
