The first step in automatic programming is the statement of information requirements in a Requirements Statement Language (RSL), a language for stating system requirements without needing to state the procedures implementing the system. The objective of this paper is development of language design principles for an RSL offering extensive requirements statement facilities. This objective is achieved through the formulation of a formal description of an information processing system. The formal description provides the criteria for requirements statement facilities of an RSL and for the capabilities of software for requirements statement analysis.
