As the intelligence behind the physical equipment, software should meld and coordinate a system's resources into a smoothly functioning, easy-to-use whole. Software has a direct impact on performance and can literally make or break a product.
For systems with a screen, the software interface is one of the first things customers see and that which has the strongest positive or negative impressions on them. Good software provides the flexibility to evolve and improve the functioning of a system and its development, and it is as much art as engineering.
