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 more than 15 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.

Axivion Suite

Our main product is the Axivion 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 C, C++ and C#. 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 and rules for C Secure Coding (ISO/IEC TS 17961) are supported.

About us: for architects

Your software architecture is the backbone of the device software. With our support, developers gain a better understanding and greater acceptance of your architecture. Thanks to good communications with the development team, you gain more time for your core remit: the development of new versions and products.

Axivion’s automated solutions enhance transparency within the system, carry out clearly comprehensible analyses which improve your interaction with developers and lay the technical foundations for your product innovations.

+

About us: for managers

Your figures speak for themselves: Productivity goes up and production costs go down, as do your error correction and recall action costs. Your development investments are safeguarded thanks to extended product life cycles. At product level, you can respond flexibly to market and customer requirements.

At code level, Axivion Suite helps you to lay the basis for the development of product variants  and new products, assists you in complying with key guidelines and standards and facilitates knowledge transfer and the assignment of projects to the development team.

  • „Thanks to the Axivion Suite, we have the maintainability of our software under control, thereby safeguarding our long-term capacity for innovation.“

    Thomas Stahl, Director Software Engineering, Fresenius Medical Care

  • „Using Axivion Suite has brought us two outstanding benefits: during its introduction, our developers grappled intensively with the architecture, which has grown up over a period of years, and we can now optimize the code in a targeted way, based on findings from the various sprints.“

    Rainer Thieringer, Head of Software Development Department, TRUMPF Laser

  • „With the Axivion Suite, we have significantly reduced our integration effort and integration risk.“

    Daniel Zimmermann, Head of OSS Software, HENSOLDT Sensors GmbH

  • „The Axivion Suite helps us implement our architectural concepts flawlessly. The seamless integration into our UML tool chain went without a hitch and it has made our everyday work easier.“

    Thomas Kremer, Teamleader Integration & Configuration EPB Software System Development, TRW Automotive GmbH

  • “The Axivion Suite is a real game changer. Thanks to continuous tests, the programmers go through a learning curve, which increases acceptance of the respective architectural requirements. In this kind of software archaeology project, this clears the way for reaching Level 3 of the Automotive SPICE standard.”

    Kosmas Kopmeier, Director Engineering Consulting, SynSpace Group GmbH, Freiburg

  • „The continuous architecture check ensures that we always have a reliable basis for discussion for architecture decisions. This enables us to focus on the important questions of what is a good architecture for our products.“

    Dr. Tobias Frank, Head of Safety & Configuration, PHOENIX CONTACT Software GmbH

  • „The Axivion Suite provides us with crucial support when implementing new features in EB street director and guaranteeing the quality of our software solutions in the long term.“

    Jakob Schmidt, Software Architect at Elektrobit

  • “From a technical perspective, the Axivion Suite won us over with all of its functions for automated code and architecture verification. However, it was the excellent support from the Axivion Professional Services Team that proved to be the key to the high level of acceptance among developers and the fast and highly productive results: the way the new tool suite was rolled out and integrated into our workflows plus the highly motivating training for everyone involved have made the suite a complete success.”

    Jan Schröder, Team Leader for Software Architecture and Modules, Jungheinrich Norderstedt AG & Co. KG

  • „The Axivion Suite provides us with vital support in ensuring our software quality. Its checks are not merely driven by existing standards, they even exceed the required level.“

    Michael Dalpiaz, Head of Embedded Software, Dentsply Sirona

  • „Integration with Enterprise Architect was perfect: Finally models can be enforced without intensive visual inspection!“

    Heiko Stehli, Software Architect, HENSOLDT Sensors GmbH

  • „The Axivion Suite is another crucial building block for quality assurance in our firmware development, particularly in terms of the increasingly strict safety and security requirements within an industrial environment.“

    Christoph Kuner, M.Sc., FS Director, TR-Electronic GmbH

  • „The key factor for us is that the Axivion Suite has a high level of adaptability unsurpassed by any other tool suite. That is the only way we can continue meeting our own high quality standards for our intelligent sensors in an increasingly digitalised industrial environment.“

    Kai Siegwart, Competence Center Software, Software Quality Assurance, Leuze electronic GmbH & Co. KG

  • „We all agree that the Axivion Suite is an important module for projects with long life cycles. In future, we will use it in all of our new software projects.“

    Detlev Kuschke, Executive Vice President, PHOENIX CONTACT Software GmbH

  • „When it comes to implementing our quality standards, the Axivion Suite is a major help from the perspective of integrating external suppliers.“

    Stephan Drozniak, Software Development Manager for Infusion Systems, B. Braun Melsungen AG

  • „We exhaustively evaluated a whole range of analysis tools. The Axivion Suite has impressed us during our daily development work due to its comprehensive open functions which could readily be adapted to our needs. On top of this we benefit from the practical support provided by Axivion’s professional services team, who are there to help us during every phase of our software quality assurance.“

    Dr. Stefan Staudt, Software Quality Manager, TRUMPF

  • „Our innovations are increasingly dependent on software. At the same time, the customer and market requirements are changing faster and faster, and the number of different versions is increasing. This calls for fast response times and the Axivion Suite helps us significantly in this respect.“

    Gundolf Schmidt, Chief Engineer EPB Software System Development, TRW Automotive GmbH

  • „The Axivion Suite allows the conformity of our product line architecture to be checked precisely. Thus, together with external partners, we are able to produce high-quality software that satisfies medical technology standards.“

    Jens Siebert, Software Architect, Software Development for Infusion Systems, B. Braun Melsungen AG

  • „A huge amount of specialist expertise has gone into our grinding software. We’ve put a lot of effort and passion into developing it, in particular its architecture and we are continuously adding further innovative features. From now on, our specialist grinding expertise will enjoy additional protection from the Axivion Suite.“

    Christian Küster, Commercial Manager, Haas Schleifmaschinen GmbH
