ARTiSAN's Real-time Studio Pro in Control at Goodrich Engine Systems

9/24/2003 - ARTiSAN Software Tools, a global leader for UML-based, real-time systems and software modeling tools, announced that Goodrich Engine Control Systems' Birmingham UK facility has selected ARTiSAN's Real-time Studio Professional as its standard tool for software development on mission critical, UML-based projects. Goodrich is one of the world's leading aerospace engine control systems suppliers.

"We have been using Real-time Studio roughly for two years," commented Jim Daly, System Architect at Goodrich. "The tool has proven to be very stable, versatile, quick to learn, and is a popular choice with our engineers. We evaluated other tools but Real-time Studio differentiated itself with its extremely intuitive and customizable user interface. It is very flexible supporting four variants of Ada, it can be integrated with tools from other vendors and also has a degree of built-in configuration management. ARTiSAN's consulting services quickly brought us up to speed with Real-time Studio and UML and helped us to achieve success on our projects much faster than would have been possible on our own."

"Real-time Studio's user interface has evolved to the point where a newcomer to the tool can quickly come up to speed, and an expert user can focus on actual work rather than workarounds," commented Jeremy Goulding, President and CEO of ARTiSAN Software. "Out of the box, whether users are working with C, C++, Java or Ada, the tool is very instinctive quite simply, it works the way you do. Its open architecture makes it even more intuitive, allowing users to customize the tool to suit specific needs. Real-time Studio is one of the last remaining design tools to truly support the Ada community not simply from a marketing perspective, but from a practical, engineering one, and in a UML design process too. Our customers working on mission and safety critical applications, such as Goodrich, expect and deserve nothing less."
