This paper proposes that a well defined software construction process, and standards for key components, is a successful way for future software engineering. One of the main topics of building complex and safety critical software systems is the establishing of constructing quality as key knowledge for automotive engineers. It suggests that a high technology product can only be cost effectively produced by standardisation, effective engineering and management processes and considering the human factor. The software construction of complex, safety critical systems can no longer be a job for individual artists, it has to be the job of trained and motivated engineers, even in a classical industry such as automotive.
