Artisan HOOD Bridge

Artisan Software Tools has acquired the HOOD Bridge technology from Objektum Solutions and renamed it Artisan HOOD Bridge. HOOD Bridge technology precisely maps the elements of the HOOD designs and Ada source to a UML model. UML artifacts are generated for each element based on the mapping rules. As elements are created, automatic checking ensures integrity and consistency. Rare mismatches are flagged for resolution, ensuring traceability and the highest level of migration fidelity.

The Artisan HOOD Bridge analyzes HOOD detailed designs and/or Ada source code, enabling engineers to correct errors in the original design, compare HOOD designs with Ada source code and merge Ada source code with existing HOOD designs. This results in the automatic generation of new Artisan Studio UML models from the original legacy HOOD designs and/or Ada code. To ease the adoption of UML by users familiar with HOOD, Artisan Studio’s ergonomic profiling capabilities have been exploited to present users with familiar HOOD diagrams in Studio.

Key personnel from Objektum will work with Artisan in its legacy migration efforts while also continuing to support existing customers.
