ATOS (Advanced Tools for Object-oriented Software development) is a three
year (1999-2002) research project financed by:
The research is carried out at the Software Systems Laboratory, Tampere
University of Technology. The aim is to study advanced tool support for UML
based software development. In particular, we are investigating new kinds of
automated tool support that could be integrated with a CASE tool.
Our platform for prototype implementations is TED, a software design
environment developed and used at Nokia.
At least some of the new tools developed by the group are intended to
become part of the production version of TED used at Nokia business units
The main research lines are:
- Visual UML-integrated scripting mechanisms
- UML model transformation / abstraction / synthesis / checking techniques
- Reverse engineering techniques producing UML models.
ATOS project was finished as scheduled on 31st of March,
2002. The tools and techniques produced during the project are being
further developed in the UML++ and
