Robert J. Ellison
In this paper, Robert Ellison discusses characteristics of software and how they influence how software assurance should be managed.

The scope and size of the system are obvious attributes to consider. A large system is built by first decomposing it into pieces that are more easily managed. Project management decisions often influence how that decomposition is done.
