Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Rolls-Royce¶
Rolls-Royce Control Systems supplies engine control and monitoring systems for aviation applications, and is required to design, certify, and deliver these to the highest level of safety assurance. To allow Rolls-Royce to develop safe and robust systems, which continue to increase in complexity, model-based techniques are now a critical part of the software development process.
The aim of this partnership is to enable Rolls-Royce Control Systems to transition from a set of proprietary UML-based modelling tools to a domain-specific, scalable and open-source collaborative model-based engineering infrastructure that will be used to architect and integrate the software for all future Rolls-Royce engine control and monitoring systems. In the context of this partnership, York provides expertise in Eclipse-based modelling technologies such as EMF, Sirius, Xtext and Epsilon.
