LieberLieber strengthens its partnership with Willert Software Tools to develop a real-time solution for UML code generation
Vienna/Bückeburg, November 27th, 2014 – The cooperation that started in 2011 between the two embedded engineering specialists LieberLieber Software and Willert Software Tools has resulted in an optimized UML-based solution, presented at the Embedded Software Engineering Congress 2014. In view of continually growing requirements, especially in the area of embedded software development, this new solution can help developers to create more complex real-time-critical systems while adhering to appropriate standards. “Built on years of cooperation with Willert, we now offer an efficient Plug&Play solution that will introduce a previously unknown scope of simplicity and speed into new projects. We are also deliberately addressing developers who have not yet been able to gain very much experience in UML and have not taken the step into model-based engineering,“ explains Daniel Siegl, CEO of LieberLieber Software.
This jointly-developed solution package combines “LieberLieber Embedded Engineer” with Willert’s “Embedded UML Framework RXF.” The combination of these two products, based on Enterprise Architect by Sparx Systems, has resulted in a very efficient development environment for model-based development for embedded systems.
Attractive price, high efficiency
For Walter van der Heiden, CTO at Willert, this new solution is also attractive due to its outstanding cost/performance ratio: “We can now offer the market an efficient tool for less than 1,000 euros. At the same time, we were able to reduce the number of implemented solutions while greatly increasing efficiency. That is how users of this new tool can save a lot of time and does not have write any code!“ The Willert Framework serves as the link between the UML and hardware, which also optimizes the configurability and demand for resources. In come cases, the size of the code could be reduced by almost 60% to only a few kB.
Since its founding in 1992, Willert Software Tools GmbH has concentrated on software and systems engineering for embedded systems with difficult real-time requirements and limited resources, among other things also in the area of safety. All areas of the V-model are covered: Requirements management solutions, modeling, simulation and code generation, compiler, debugger, test management and test automation. All components can be combined to form an integrated ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) solution. In addition to its own tools, Willert offers and implements products from IBM Rational, Sparx Systems, Polarion, Keil, IAR along with methodical and technical training and coaching.
