<p>This report from the State of Practice Working Group of the IEEE Computer Society Task Force on Engineering of Computer-Based Systems (ECBS) advocates a new discipline at the systems engineering level. The report addresses the need for an ECBS discipline, identifies current practice and needed research, and suggests improvements that are achievable today. It addresses problem areas: the ECBS process itself, requirements definition, design, interfaces, management, process automation, and documentation. The report concludes that an improved ECBS discipline is necessary for improving processes and for fostering research and training.</p>
