Axivion – We are stopping Software Erosion

We have coined a term for the steady, insidious deterioration of internal software structure: Software Erosion. But that is not all. For over ten years, our tools and solutions have assisted developers of technical software in combating precisely this problem: Software Erosion. Our customers chiefly operate in the following industries:  aerospace, automation technology, automotive, electronics, information and communications technology, measurement & control technology, mechanical engineering, medical technology and railway engineering.

Solutions

Our comprehensive solutions permit reverse engineering and architecture recovery, ensure compliance with key safety standards, lay the foundations for successful architecture management and guarantee long-term protection from Software Erosion.

About our solutions

Axivion Bauhaus Suite

Our main product is the Axivion Bauhaus Suite. This sophisticated tool suite employs a range of analyses to supply you with valuable information whereby you can enhance the quality of your software and safeguard the long-term ease of maintenance of systems based on the programming languages Ada, C, C++, C# and Java. The MISRA checker from Axivion covers 100 per cent of the automatically checkable MISRA rules for the programming standards MISRA C:2004, MISRA C:2012 and MISRA C++:2008. Furthermore, the AUTOSAR C++14 styleguide as well as the CERT® programming rules for secure software development are supported.

25.01.2018 +++ Press release of 25 January 2018

TR-Electronic uses the Axivion Bauhaus Suite with architecture analysis and MISRA checker for firmware development

Manage firmware variants in automation solutions while ensuring secure, long-term further development: Introducing the Axivion Bauhaus Suite has enabled TR-Electronic GmbH in Trossingen to ensure that custom software requirements are implemented consistently and its proven architecture models are respected. Static analyses, as well as MISRA and CERT® checks provided by the tool in order to prevent systematic safety and security errors, ensure compliance with TR-Electronic’s stringent safety standards for sensors and actuators. At the same time, the checks and reports provided by the Axivion Bauhaus Suite are largely automated, which has greatly reduced the amount of time and money spent on verification and validation during firmware development.
