Capturing the imagination of software developers, the phrase achieved popularity during the 1970s. It now refers to a collection of management processes, software tooling, and design activities for software development. The resulting practice, however, differs significantly from the practice of older forms of engineering. The paper begins by examining the usual practice of engineering and the way it has evolved in older disciplines. This discussion provides a historical context for assessing the current practice of software production and setting out an agenda for attaining an engineering practice."
