Ada Used To
Develop A Simulator
Run By Robots
After evaluating several other languages, including Pascal and C, Ada was chosen for the project because it guarantees inexpensive and quality programming. The reusability of Ada modules significantly cut down the time and cost of development.3IP and Manufacturing Process Control
3IP, a company of 80 employees, dedicates itself to the development and the marketing of software products as well as to the supplying of consulting and auditing services in the industrial market.Implementation of the Ada System
3IP developed a production line machine simulator written entirely in Ada. The software, named SIMULA, can simulate the real-time operations of any production machine and provides a description and analysis of the behaviors of the manufacturing process control systems simultaneously.Advantages of Using Ada
According to Philippe Pillon, Project Manager, "Ada was the appropriate language to develop SIMULA. After a comparison with Pascal and C, Ada was chosen because it guarantees inexpensive and quality programming. For instance, the reusability of Ada modules significantly cut down our time and cost of development". In addition, he points out that the language rigor provides a much higher safety execution than other languages, which is a key advantage within the manufacturing process world.For further information, contact:
