Automated software generation has been proposed as the solution to the current software crisis. According to this idea, the end user provides a high level specification of his or her needs to a machine and a working implementation is synthesized from this specification. Formal approaches have been found impractical for handling large applications and in most cases heuristics and domain-specific knowledge are used, trading off accuracy and optimality for decreased complexity in execution. The impact of these tradeoffs in the reliability of the final product is investigated and a knowledge organization scheme is presented and used as a framework to describe the architecture of an automatic program synthesis system.
