Cordis Suite is a practical toolset that is used to design software according to the principles of Model Driven Engineering. Cordis Suite is particularly suited for control logic for high-tech machines such as medical equipment or 3D printers, but can also be used for infrastructural systems such as bridges and tunnels or climate control systems in buildings (‘smart buildings’).
ICT Group is one of the first software companies to specialise in this new method of software development. Model Driven Engineering (MDE) is a design method that can save a lot of time and money and improve efficiency. In Model Driven Engineering, everyone involved in a project works together in a single functional model. This improves coordination between stakeholders, which in turn leads to a software solution with fewer bugs.
Model Driven Engineering differs from traditional software development in two ways. First of all, the functional model automatically generates computer code. The second difference is the use of simulated hardware: the digital twin. This makes it possible to runs tests and generate feedback in the early stages of the project, which reduces pressure to make deadlines.
Companies have to be able to rely on complex and robust software. However, it is easy to make mistakes, which cost extra time and money. How do you develop error-proof software?
