Notes

Background: “The Softect is a necessary Function in a large Software-Engineering environment, in which there are many specialist Software-Engineers. The Softect is the necessary synchronization and co-ordination Function for the many specialized engineers and builders. The Softect presumes that the software must be designed, and is only concerned with finding a technical Solution set which will satisfy the multiple conflicting objectives of the user as well as possible. … The Softect is also a specialist Software-Engineer, the specialty being overall control of a Complex Engineering Process.” [Gilb88, p. 258] The term “Infotect” (*568) was also coined to describe the information System architect in the same book.
