SELTA Selects ARTiSAN's Real-time Studio Pro for Development Tool

6/9/2004 - ARTiSAN Software Tools, a global leader for UML-based, real-time systems and software modeling tools, announced that SELTA SpA, a leading European company specializing in the design and manufacture of enterprise communication systems, systems for access networks, and automation and transmission systems for utilities, selected Real-time Studio Professional as its corporate standard tool for software and systems development.

"We are very impressed with Real-time Studio's feature-set," commented Leonardo Nani, Leader of a new SELTA project in the area of railway signaling. "We looked at tools from several vendors but were immediately struck by Real-time Studio's ease of use and code generation customizability capabilities. Other tools we explored were too focused on code generation, not enough on modeling, and produced black box code that couldn't be tweaked. Real-time Studio is the only tool we found that produced excellent code that could be easily customized. SELTA aims to establish strict corporate standards for software manufacturing, and Real-time Studio's customizability will help us in shaping our coding processes to be adopted company wide."

Francesco Cesena, Networks & Systems Division Manager at SELTA, added "We selected Real-time Studio primarily because it could do one thing that we haven't seen in other tools: fully support collaborative development. The tool's multi-user repository allows SELTA engineers to exchange models with their Italian and international partners. From an engineering perspective, the ability for engineers in different physical locations to share synchronized models is truly awesome. And from a business perspective, it is truly necessary. Additionally, Real-time Studio's customizability will help us in attaining a higher CMM Quality level."

Jeremy Goulding, President and CEO of ARTiSAN Software, commented, "ARTiSAN is obviously very happy that Real-time Studio was selected by SELTA as their corporate standard development tool. Real-time Studio's multi-user repository is proving key to our success in projects where collaboration is required, especially in sectors where projects have geographically spread design teams. A lot of energy and money is typically spent on trying to keep teams synchronized and our repository approach eliminates the possibility of teams being out of sync - as Mr. Cesena asserted, it is not simply a nice-to-have feature, but an essential one."

Carmelo Tommasi, Managing Director of ARTiSAN Software Tools SRL added, "We are very pleased that SELTA chose ARTiSAN Italy as a partner. This is a quite typical case in Italy, where ARTiSAN is perceived not only as an excellent tool supplier, but as a "total solution partner" by its most experienced and sophisticated customers. The technical and methodological skills of ARTiSAN Italy people in software technology, combined with the huge experience and competence of SELTA designers in their specific application fields, allow a quick and fruitful introduction of Real-time Studio in SELTA design and engineering processes."
