Press Release: Open Source: Using ERNEST, developers can pinpoint flaws in the early stages of software design

Press Release, August 19, 2015

To give as many developers as possible the opportunity to validate their software, Fraunhofer ESK is making the basic version of its ERNEST framework, which is designed to examine the runtime performance of model-based software, available via open source. Developers who download the framework from the GitHub platform can use it for free, plus they have full access to the source code. That allows them to adapt the framework to their own requirements. ERNEST was created specifically for developers who design model-based software, such as for vehicle systems. The ESK framework helps developers identify flaws in non-functional aspects of the software architecture, such as runtime performance, during the early stages of design, resulting in both time and cost savings.
