Various divisions within Saab have been long-time practitioners of executable modeling. Today it was announced that Saab will be opening a site in the USA next door to Purdue University and One Fact headquarters!

The state transition diagram is a graphical representation of a finite state machine in an executable UML model. The states are the rounded boxes; transitions are the arrows between. Events label the transitions, and activities can be expressed as action language in the states or on the transitions. A state event matrix (or state transition

The model compiler builders are changing. Anyone using a Nightly Build after April 5, 2019 will need to upgrade their model compiler projects following the procedure outlined in section 5.2.1 of this engineering note. Read the note. I think you will agree the cleanup is worth the minor upgrade inconvenience.
The BridgePoint development team understands modeling, model-driven development and the benefits of abstraction, methodology and rigor. Additionly, the team leverages the latest cloud-based technologies to support the engineering flow. GitHub, Amazon Web Services, Redmine, Jenkins, Eclipse, real-time web chatting and more combine to take requirements to deployment. A typical scenario might be as follows: A

Before a letter arrives in your mailbox, it has experienced hundreds of process steps in the journey from sender to receiver. Automation equipment has photographed the face of the envelope, binarized the image, located the address blocks, decoded the address blocks using optical character recognition (OCR), bar-coded the envelope with invisible barcodes (fluorescent) and robotically

We Like AsciiDoc We Like AsciiDoc 1. Introduction and Background The BridgePoint development team has used plain ascii text as the primary medium for design documentation since the beginning (more than 20 years now). Alternate considerations included Microsoft Word, DocBook XML and a desktop publishing system called FrameMaker. The BridgePoint engineering process prescribes “notes” to

One Fact hosted a high school senior from Faith Christian School in Lafayette, Indiana for a brief one week internship. Elly jumped right in learning about modeling and BridgePoint. She built the tool and contributed a patch to the welcome page plugin.
Amazon and others are offering cloud services with no requirement for provisioning… just deploy code and scale from 0 to really high. xtUML and BridgePoint support modeling your application independently of its deployment architecture and generating code to embedded targets or to the cloud or both. BridgePoint now has capability to generate Java targeted to

Shlaer-Mellor modeling has always claimed to provide Platform Independent Models (PIMs) that can be translated with platform specific software architectures. The theory is sound…, but tangible, touchable, downloadable examples can be hard to find. Several teams of engineers have successfully re-deployed applications onto different targets, and teams have reused their software architectures (model compilers) on
