[auto-iwg] Survey on Model-based SW Engineering and auto-generated code


Call for participation


Model-Based Software Engineering (MBSwE) and the use of Auto-Generated Code (AGC) for safety-critical applications have become more and more popular.  Typical areas include aerospace, automotive, nuclear, military, and many others. MBSwE with automated code generation is often considered to produce “code with fewer bugs and much faster”.  The current focus towards autonomous systems poses new possibilities and challenges for MBSwE and automated code generation.

We are evaluating experiences in the use of MBSwE/AGC at NASA and other relevant industries.  This survey assesses the current state-of-the-practice, advantages and disadvantages, V&V practices, and certification issues for safety-critical systems that use MBSwE and/or execute code that is generated from models.

We would appreciate it if you could participate in our online survey before March 31st, 2016. The survey is located at and we estimate that it would take about 30 minutes to complete.  All responses are anonymous, unless you specifically choose to provide personal information and your email address.  At completion, we will be happy to send a copy of our report to respondents who provide their email addresses during the survey or request the report by sending an e-mail to SurveyMBSwEandAGC@xxxxxxxxx.

Please forward this call for participation to any and all of your colleagues with experience in this topic.

Thank you in advance for participating in our survey.
