In this paper we analyse typical problems of the software process. The analysis shows that the problems are not caused by external factors alone, but also by poor understanding of the nature of the software production process. We outline a general solution with seven key factors. The proposed solution supports the natural problem solving in software production and facilities the maximum re-use of design work and the use of efficient tools. Finally we discuss the relation of proposed solution to our SOKRATES method, language and compiler. The results show that our method offers a new and fast approach to the real-time software production. We have demonstrated that the propagation of a change in behavioural requirement to a change in observable behaviour in a reasonable embedded system takes less than 20 minutes with updated documentation.
