Tools > Software Design > Virtual Prototyping


Besides the automatic code generation, we also developed an advanced methodology to connect the software system (both PLC and embedded) to a virtual prototype. This enables the software architect to test his software in a real-time, interactive and closed-loop environment.


The benefits of this method are:

  • short development time;
  • early identification of software errors;
  • helps software architect to examine and test all possible scenarios;
  • supports the communication with all relevant stakeholders;
  • it is possible to perform a risk assessment in an early stage;
  • it can be used as training tool for the operators and service engineers.
