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.
TRUMPF’s software developers use the Axivion Bauhaus Suite to check both their existing software and newly written code. Style violations, metric anomalies, duplicated and dead code are systematically located and flagged up for programmers to deal with. The architecture check in the Axivion Bauhaus Suite allows TRUMPF’s developers to verify their architecture.
Alongside the functions for safeguarding code quality, which can easily be integrated into their daily development work processes, TRUMPF personnel value the support they receive from the experts in Axivion’s professional services team. Apart from the technical integration and customer-specific enhancement of the code and architecture checking tools, this support includes advice on and training in the efficient deployment of the Axivion Bauhaus Suite and protecting the long-term integrity of the codebase.
“We exhaustively evaluated a whole range of analysis tools,” says Dr Stefan Staudt, Software Quality Manager at TRUMPF. “The Axivion Bauhaus 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.”
