Production strategies for Ford/Intel 8061 applications are hand-coded in 8061 assembler language. A parallel and independent effort codes the strategy in Ford Automotive Control Terminology (FACT), a higher level application language. Output from the two strategies are compared as a part of the certification process. In 1982 a project was initiated to generate 8061 code directly from the FACT specification. That effort was successful and currently meets commercial standards for production systems. The compiler, its optimization and scaling algorithms, and its performance are described in this paper.
