What we do

In a world that runs on software, accelerating software development and maintenance is what we do.

Not only does the progress of our society rely on our ability to keep developing software, but the more software that is developed, the more it must be maintained in order to keep our society running.
There is much at stake.

Thanks to our industrial partners, we put our ideas to the test in heterogeneous industrial environments ranging from Induction Hob Firmwares to Train Control Systems.

Topics: Search-based Software Engineering, Model Driven engineering, Software Product Lines.
