    For nearly a quarter of a century Bruce Blum has been implementing information systems. In this book he describes and evaluates a comprehensive environment called TEDIUM, for the development and maintenance of information systems. TEDIUM automates most of the software life cycle and has been used to implement large and complex systems, which are used routinely in life critical situations. Blum reviews the software process, describes the TEDIUM environment, evaluates 8 years of operational experience, and identifies the factors that improve productivity.
