The aim of software engineering is to find methods for developing high quality software products at a reasonable cost. As more and more computers are being used in areas in which a malfunction of the system can be a source of serious losses or disturbances to the functioning of the society, the quality of software becomes a more and more critical factor of business success, human security, and safety. Examples of such application areas are enterprise management, public administration, and social insurance or post delivery services. The quality of services offered to the society depends on the quality of software systems that support the functioning of the respective public or private organizations (service providers).
