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 code base of Multigrind® Horizon forms the foundation for the precise grinding process performed by the successful Multigrind® grinding machines. At Haas, the Axivion Bauhaus Suite is used for static code analysis and automated architecture verification and recovery – not only to provide the architecture with long-term protection from software erosion but also to create a future-proof code base for continuing developments.

Safeguarding architecture safeguards specialist expertise

“A huge amount of specialist expertise has gone into our grinding software,” says Christian Küster, commercial manager of Haas Schleifmaschinen. “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 Bauhaus Suite.”

Multigrind® Horizon is a geometry-based, intuitive grinding software package which opens up new technological horizons for the user in terms of user-friendliness and efficiency, both at the design stage and when operating the machine. No less exacting are the demands placed on the Axivion Bauhaus Suite by the software development team at Haas Schleifmaschinen: “For our sophisticated systems, we need tools which go beyond pure static code analysis and which can localise architectural violations and hidden dependencies, style violations, clones, dead code and circular dependencies”, says Wolfram Hermle, software development manager at Haas Schleifmaschinen. “We expect these software tools to integrate seamlessly into our development process and deliver genuine added value.”

Impressive two-day workshop

Axivion showcased this added value at a two-day workshop in Trossingen, where software architects and programmers were shown on-site demonstrations of the Axivion Bauhaus Suite and its attractive optimisation potentials. Those present were impressed by the informative analysis results provided by the tool suite, as well as its user-friendly automated architecture  verification and static code analysis.

As with every client, Axivion ensured rapid integration of the Axivion Bauhaus Suite within Haas Schleifmaschinen’s individual development environment and design processes.
