Summary:
The development of information systems is getting increasingly complex as they become more and more widely distributed and pervasive in influence. End-users expect these systems to be useful, reliable, fast, available, scalable, and secure.

To help achieve this we would like to apply to software some of the techniques learned in manufacturing reliable consumer products, such as automating repetitive tasks, gaining economies of scope through product families, and developing stable value chains to distribute cost and risk. This talk discusses the concepts and tooling needed to accomplish these goals.
