Given a specification that includes a number of user requirements, we wish to focus on the requirements in turn, and derive a partly defined program for each; then combine all the partly defined programs into a single program that satisfies all the requirements simultaneously. In this paper we introduces a mathematical basis for solving this problem; and we illustrate it by means of a simple example.
