Software Analytics and Evolution

SAE employs modern analytical and design approaches in Software Engineering with the goal of facilitating the creation and continuing development of complex technical software systems over long time frames while simultaneously ensuring utmost quality. This involves analytical and model-based approaches for automatic generation of software from domain models as well as potential end-user programming via domain-specific programming languages. The various research aspects in the area SAE pursue the long-range vision of tool-supported analysis of program code and storage of the results in abstract, long-lasting domain models. These models then serve the enterprise in the efficient generation of test cases and technical documentation as well as in automatic porting to other software technologies and programming languages.

A Graphical User Interface For A Cosy Home

Successful Cooperation with Windhager Zentralheizung

Together with central heating manufacturer Windhager from Seekirchen near Salzburg, a SAE team led by Mario Winterer implemented the graphical user interface for Windhager's new generation of solid fuel heating systems. This application allows both residents and service technicians comfortable access to heating and hot water functions.

The GUI framework Qt, where the SAE team has extensive professional expertise,  has been chosen as base technology for the application.

After months of intense development work, the team was able to release the first modules into an intensive field testing phase.

Minimize risk & improve quality

A research project delivers valuable knowledge especially for small and medium-sized IT companies.

An innovative research project is currently being conducted across province boundaries. The Institute for Computer Science of the University of Innsbruck, Software Competence Center Hagenberg GmbH (OÖ) and five companies are exploring smart testing. The goal is to improve quality in software development by targeted localization of faults and side effects.
