The number of infections with Covid-19 (coronavirus) is increasing daily worldwide. The outbreak is now classified as a pandemic by the WHO and the situation is changing daily. We at Axivion have reacted to the developments at an early stage and are in the happy position that all our employees can work in the home office. All colleagues are fully active and can be reached by our customers and partners as usual - by mail, web meetings or even by telephone on the known numbers.
As of May 2019, Axivion, provider of innovative software solutions for static code analysis and protection against software erosion, has been heightened its presence in India and Southeast Asia with the new partnership with ESA Group: The new partner Electro Systems Associates (ESA) with its group companies in Bangalore and Singapore takes over the regional distribution of the Axivion Bauhaus Suite and other Axivion solutions. In fact, Axivion also offers customer specific technical support and training for its development tools on site via its well-networked partner.
Axivion is pleased to announce that it has concluded a global framework agreement with the Bosch Group in the last quarter of 2018. Software developers at Bosch have been using Axivion tools for around 10 years in the Passive Safety and Active Safety business units of the Chassis Systems Control division, as well as in Car Multimedia and BSH Home Appliances. In the meantime, the Axivion Bauhaus Suite has become the tool of choice for automated architecture verification at Bosch, where it is also used for static code analysis and MISRA checks. The global framework agreement will now make it easier for employees across all the group’s divisions around the world to obtain tried-and-tested Axivion tools.
When we invite our partners and customers to “Relax”, they already know that we like to associate relaxation with excitement. Over 40 participants enjoyed inspiring user presentations, including from ZF, and the opportunity to chat with like-minded colleagues about technical questions and issues within the sector. By the end, everyone was certainly very relaxed.
Software architectures lay out the foundations for maintainable and sustainable development. In the past, an architecture model’s obsolescence imposed a risk on both the model and the project’s success. With hierarchical reflexion models we can continuously align the models and their implementation, so that we can leverage them at the highest level of significance throughout the system’s lifecycle.
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.
After searching long and hard for a code and architecture verification solution, Dentsply Sirona opted for the Axivion Bauhaus Suite. These Axivion tools mean that the dental equipment provider is now able to develop the increasingly complex software solutions required for CAD/CAM, imaging systems and treatment units using state-of-the-art methods while also ensuring that these solutions are maintainable in the long term. The developers at Dentsply Sirona were able to integrate the Axivion Bauhaus Suite into their process with ease and start using it productively in next to no time. The structured and automated approach to code and architecture verification soon produced results, resulting in a high level of acceptance among all users of the Axivion Bauhaus Suite.
With Axivion Bauhaus Suite, the growing number of software-based product variants used can be managed easily. At HENSOLDT Sensors (formerly Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security), the Axivion tool suite, with its automatic architecture and code analysis, supports successful variant management and the efficient further development of products with many variants.
Leuze electronic relies on the Axivion Bauhaus Suite when safeguarding the architecture and code base of software platforms for the new DCR200i camera-based code reader and future products for Industry 4.0. Axivion has customized the tool suite to the clients' requirements, ensuring that the developer can easily test and maintain the continuously extending code stock during operation. This enables Leuze to permanently guarantee the quality and maintainability of the software in their products with a mission time of 10 years or more.
At its Schramberg location TRUMPF GmbH + Co. KG has for some time been using the Axivion Bauhaus Suite for code and architecture checking during the development of its embedded software and PC software for its laser systems. Now the technology and market leader for machine tools rolls out the use of the Axivion Bauhaus Suite to other parts of the company for software development quality assurance.
What began with a small project in 2013 is now being rolled out successively in more and more areas: Phoenix Contact is the global market leader for components, systems and solutions in the field of electrical engineering, electronics and automation, and uses the Axivion Bauhaus Suite in embedded and PC software development for its products designed using C, C++ and C#.
Axivion, the Stuttgart-based provider of comprehensive solutions for fighting software erosion, is supporting the next academic generation: The company is one of more than 40 sponsors, which include companies, foundations and private individuals and are committed to supporting the University of Stuttgart by means of the Deutschlandstipendium 2016.
Long-term mechanical engineering innovation is only possible with proactive software quality management: from now on, Haas Schleifmaschinen of Trossingen will use Axivion tools and solutions to ensure the quality and ease of maintaining Multigrind® Horizon, the grinding and simulation software Haas has developed in-house.
The Axivion Bauhaus Suite is to provide ZF Friedrichshafen AG with quality assurance support for embedded software in the company’s Car Powertrain Technology division.
How can automotive cope with the challenges ahead? New business models & processes, skills and organizations are needed to stay competitive when new players such as Google, Amazon and Apple are entering the industry. Strategies are challenged by shorter development time for automation, electrification and connectivity projects. We look forward to your visit at booth H01:14 on August 25-26, 2020 in Gothenburg/Sweden.
