Atego solutions direct and automate the tasks involved in systems engineering and software development. This is achieved through techniques such as Collaborative Design, Reuse and Process Governance.
Atego’s dedicated certification engineering services are focused on helping organizations deliver standards compliant avionics systems cost effectively. Our consultants use their many years of expertise in the development and certification of safety critical systems to provide independent advice, help organizations like yours optimize their processes and develop engineering team skills.
Most legacy embedded and real-time applications were developed with C or C++. Although error-prone, such approaches were adequate when embedded applications were simple and small, and hardware was slow and expensive. Today, the embedded equation has changed. As hardware costs plummet and capacity soars, embedded software requirements become more complex and demanding. Because software engineering is labor intensive and costly, and because complexity exponentially increases problems of reliability, integration, and maintenance, the old ways are increasingly intractable.
Architectural Frameworks, often called Enterprise Architecture, are used to define the structure, behavior, capabilities and organizational aspects of large enterprises or complex systems. Because the enterprises or systems described tend to be large and complex, the models associated with the discipline also tend to be large and complex. To manage this scale and complexity, an Architectural Framework defines different, but complementary, views of the enterprise or system model corresponding to different stakeholders or areas of interest.
Atego is the world’s largest independent supplier of industrial-grade, collaborative modeling tools for complex, mission-critical systems and software. Artisan Studio is our stable, robust modeling environment, with thousands of users across the world. It provides comprehensive support for the leading industry standards, including OMG’s SysML, UML and Architectural Frameworks, such as UPDM. Artisan Studio is an environment – allowing systems and software engineering teams to Work-as-One™ – from concept through to delivery, maintenance and support.
The main challenges when implementing an organizational process include; the effort to author and maintain the content, applying the processes during program and project management and getting engineers to actually use the processes. This supply-manage-consume conundrum is particularly challenging if you attempt to use basic technologies such as Microsoft Word documents and/or HTML web sites for all but the most basic of processes.
Safety & Mission Critical
Atago provides many solutions to help with the development and deployment of safety and mission critical systems. Software now pervades almost every aspect of daily life; transport systems depend on safe software for control of vehicles and their infrastructure. Financial institutions rely on secure software for accounting and the transfer of money; Industrial software controls equipment and manufacturing processes. Hospitals depend on software for managing patient records and for control of life-support systems.
SOA & Design Reuse
As Component Based Development (CBD) and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) are becoming more and more prevalent, even within previously unexpected areas such as real-time, great benefits can be achieved by using similar approaches during design. Not only do you find architectural problems earlier but the design also map to the implementation with high-fidelity.
