ARTiSAN and Tassc have set up a technology partnership to combine ARTiSAN Real-time Studio (RtS) and Tassc:Estimator, to provide the capability to deliver UML-compliant software modelling projects on schedule and within budget.
Jeremy Goulding, ARTiSAN's president and CEO, said, “Keeping large team development projects on schedule and within budget makes the difference between success and failure of product development. Reliable estimates are an essential ingredient in ensuring that project objectives for cost, schedule, functionality, and quality are realistic and can be achieved.”
RtS Estimator allows developers to create instant estimates of project duration, costs and resource requirements based directly on their UML models. The core UML estimation technology contains mathematical formulae and complex algorithms, as well as real-world productivity and technology metric data collected from hundreds of software projects.
“We are also addressing the needs of development organisations that require to establish methods and practices that are measurable and allow earlier project successes to be repeated in a controlled and predictable way,” said Robert Armstrong, Tassc co-founder.
