AUTOSAR Engineer

AUTOSAR Engineer

LieberLieber AUTOSAR Engineer is a product package from LieberLieber for the professional creation of AUTOSAR models using Enterprise Architect by Sparx Systems. This package is based on a UML AUTOSAR profile that allows the creation of models directly in Enterprise Architect in accordance with the AUTOSAR 4 Virtual Function Bus (VFB) specification. The profile provides all necessary AUTOSAR elements like components, interfaces, runnables, etc.

The LieberLieber Modeling Assistants are built in to ensure fast and fluid modeling. These assist modelers by, for example, automating the transfer of setting when model elements are connected, or during the layout of components with port elements. They increase productivity, save time, provide extended layout functionalities and ensure a valid model, because they extend the model validation capabilities of Enterprise Architect with a focus on AUTOSAR modeling.

You can export the data from your AUTOSAR model using the LieberLieber AUTOSAR Connector in the AUTOSAR ARXML format, with which a continuous AUTOSAR tool chain can be configured or the model can be integrated into an existing tool chain.

LieberLieber AUTOSAR Engineer offers the following features:

  • Support for the AUTOSAR 4 VFB modeling standard (component types, interfaces, runables, …) by a UML2 profile
  • Inclusion of further modeling options (e.g. modeling of events to start runnables)
  • Intelligent modeling support from modeling assistants in the background – e.g. name, type and direction are automatically set on a new connected port
  • Enterprise Architect Quick-Linker is supported
  • Mixed modeling with UML and SysML in the same repository is possible and supported
  • BARXML export

The following show two AUTOSAR VFB models created with the help of LieberLieber AUTOSAR Engineer. This example is from the AUTOSAR 4 VFB specification.

The modeling of behavior of component such as runnables, events and inter-runnable variables is supported by LieberLieber AUTOSAR Engineer.

EA SafeDelete

easafedelete logo

When deleting items (Views, Packages, Elements or Diagrams) from a repository, Enterprise Architect warns the user that the delete action is irreversible, however, Enterprise Architect’s delete functionality can pose some challenges for the unaware:

The wording of the warnings: If a user deletes an item from a diagram (Ctrl + Del), then the warning indicates that the process cannot be undone. However if does not warn that any children will also be deleted. If a user deletes an item from the Project Browser (Ctrl + Del or Right-click Delete), then the warning indicates that the process will delete all children, but does not warn that the process cannot be undone. Enterprise Architect provides no indication as to the effect that deleting an item from the repository may have on other items in the repository. For example, which diagrams refer to this item, and what relationships exist between this item and other items. As the delete process cannot be undone, mistakes cannot be rectified easily.

Functionality and Benefits

EA SafeDelete is an extension to Enterprise Architect that can improve model governance by helping customers understand the consequence of deleting a model element by:

Providing a standard warning dialog in addition to those provided by Enterprise Architect

Providing totals of:

  • The number of diagrams which refer to the element being deleted
  • The number of composite elements that link to a diagram being deleted
  • The number of Interaction Occurrences that link to the diagram being deleted
  • The number of elements related to the element being deleted
  • The number of elements where the element is being used as a classifier
  • The number of occurrences where this element is used as a type
  • The number of children (including any diagrams) that the element has
Providing the option of moving the item (and its children)to a re-cycle bin thus preserving any relationships, or deleting the item (and its children) from the model repository
  • Providing the functionality to empty the re-cycle bin (that is remove all items currently in the re-cycle bin from the model repository
  • Providing the functionality to restore an item (and its children) from the re-cycle bin
  • Providing the functionality to restore all items (and their children) from the re-cycle bin
  • Providing the option to enable / disable EA SafeDelete’s functionality

When an Enterprise Architect user selects to delete a Package, Element or Diagram from the repository, EA SafeDelete “intercepts” the action, analyses the consequences of the delete and provides a Consequences Summary Screen (image attached). The user can then select to investigate further, by clicking any of the enabled Show Details buttons which will provide details of the selected consequence.

The user can then use the dialog [view] to locate any of the items in the lists, by selecting the item and then selecting Find in Project Browser. EA SafeDelete provides the Enterprise Architect user with all the consequence information so that they can make an informed decision as to whether the item should be deleted from the repository or moved to a re-cycle bin. If the user selects to move an item to the re-cycle bin, EA SafeDelete will do exactly that and the item will not be removed from the repository.

Using Enterprise Architect's dockable add-in window, EA Navigator retains a history of the 50 last selected model elements, and shows the important related elements at a glance.

Use the add-in to navigate between:

  • Operations and Sequence diagrams
  • Operations and their implementation (Behavior)
  • Operations and CallOperationActions
  • Types and Parameters
  • Types and Attributes
  • And to any Fully Qualified Name (FQN) that has been copied to the clipboard.

Embedded Engineer

Embedded Engineer

  • ✓ Improved C code generation
  • ✓ Efficient C++ code generation
  • ✓ Debugging on the model level (UML)
  • ✓ User code synchronization
  • ✓ Requirements Tracing

LieberLieber Embedded Engineer for Enterprise Architect has been developed as part of the tool chain for the development of Embedded Systems, since only with an integrated solution can model-driven approaches in embedded software development be efficiently applied.

Embedded Engineer Version 2.0 offers improved code generation from ANSI-C code from UML structures, state machines and activity models, as well as – brand new – the generation of C++ source code. The automated code generation creates detailed documentation at the same time. Existing solutions must not be converted, since a clean integration of model-based and classic development exists. Compliance with norms is simplified, since only the Code Generator must be adapted. Since the source code is delivered at the same time, necessary adjustments are easily possible and no dependency on solutions providers is generated.

With the UML Debugger, included in Embedded Engineer, LieberLieber has solved a problem which has influenced several generations of code-generation tools. Whereby development has always taken place on the UML model level, debugging was then carried out in C or C ++. With the UML Debugger, debugging is now carried out directly on the model level, which represents a great step in the development of model-based development.

Model Guardian

Model Guardian

Take Control of Enterprise Architect
Model Guardian, the Framework & Model Management System, makes the process of framework development and model synchronization as easy as possible.

Framework Management
Model Guardian provides a user interface that intuitively guides you through the process of framework development, including toolboxes, quicklinks and a lot more. It even manages framework versions, including automatic archival and retrieval processing.

Model Management
Models are synchronized with the latest version of the framework, keeping them from becoming obsolete. Models created without Model Guardian can be synchronized with and brought under framework management. Broad, sweeping changes to models can be made, like changing a stereotype of all elements having that stereotype.

Yours or Ours
With Model Guardian, you can build your own frameworks or start with one of ours, e.g., the (EA) Enterprise Architecture Modeling Framework, and modify it to fit your environment.

For more information, go to: www.ModelGuardian.com.

Model Expert

modelexpert

Model Expert™ from eaDocX® is the model management extension for Enterprise Architect, giving every modeller an easy way to ensure quality and consistency in their models.

  • Everyone can model the same way. If models are consistent then they are easier to read and much more likely to be re-used
  • No more novice users. By sharing reference models, the best modelling standards can be made available to everyone. Letting every modeller be an expert modeller *
  • Define and communicate your approved company model style & standards. Only using a subset of BPMN, Archimate or UML? Or need a way to standardise how your modellers integrate Archimate elements with BPMN? No problem. Create your ‘model’ solution and then use it to quality check everything your modellers produce.
  • Configure your own rules. Specify permitted or required data, how the results are presented, and recommended fixes. Delivering an objective measure of model quality. Define a model structure and validate work done against it. Track the number and severity of problems vs. your company/department/project standards and monitor improvements as the problems are fixed.
  • Supporting Model Governance. Model Expert allows each modeller to correct their own work before release, giving the model manager confidence that the work of different teams will be compatible.
  • Applying standards and checks at every level of the model. Check for correctness at diagram level, package level or for the whole model.

* Model Expert checks for 'mechanical' correctness only, e.g. the elements, relationships, stereotypes, sub elements, attributes and tagged values that are allowed or required. The correctness of the content will always be up to you!

Now everyone can be a Model Expert
