With many decades of software-development experience across a broad spectrum of industries and subject matters, we enjoy helping our customers solve challenging problems. As pilots we love to work on anything that flies, but we are also adept at learning new subject matters and collaborating with our customers so they gain modeling expertise while developing model-based systems.
Our backgrounds, our passions,
and our abilities.
Circa 1990, John began using the Shlaer-Mellor approach for building software while helping others at IBM apply the technique to their work. For over three decades he has guided dozens of organizations in the adoption of model-driven workflows.
With a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Trinity College in Dublin, Alasdar has led many ground-breaking efforts, including:
Development of compilers, execution, and visualization environments for Dr. Harry Markowitz’s Entity-Attribute-Set-Event SIMSCRIPT II.5 on several platforms from IBM mainframes to PCs.
Development of ModSim Object-Oriented simulation language for CACI.
Development and deployment of implicit bridging between xtUML domains for JSIMS, a distributed discrete-event simulation system for training military commanders.
Development of several xtUML models:
a general-purpose framework for model-based testing
a general-purpose monitoring service
a health and usage monitoring service
a battery-management system
Several enhancements to the Ciera model compiler which generates Java from xtUML models
