Software measurement as basis for software engineering.

Munson's primary ideas revolve around measurement of software properties as the basis for sound, high quality software development. With his experience with the Space Shuttle Primary Avionics Software System (PASS) forming a significant basis for his approach.

Software Specification and Design

Munson's book "Software Specification and Design" describes a process for converting a user-level operational specification into working software via a series of refinements that produce inter-linked documents. This approach provides complete traceability from user operations down to code. A high-level description of the refinement model is shown below:


The levels of refinement are:
