The causes of the failure or significant cost/schedule overruns of complex embedded software-intensive systems projects almost always involve a combination of management issues and technical issues. This paper focuses on the technical issues of such complex embedded software-intensive systems across multiple domains, including avionics, spacecraft flight systems, and command & control systems.
