Real-Time Agile Systems and Software Development

You've found yourself on, my web site on all things real-time and embedded.

On this site you will find papers, presentations, models, forums for questions / discussions, and links (lots of links) to areas of interest, such as

  • Developing Embedded Software

  • Model-Driven Development for Real-Time Systems

  • Model-Based Systems Engineering

  • Safety Analysis and Design

  • Agile Methods for Embedded Software

  • Agile Methods for Systems Engineering

  • The Harmony agile Model-Based Systems Engineering process

  • The Harmony agile Embedded Software Development process

  • Models and profiles I've developed and authored

  • List and links to many of my books.

The menu at the top of each page either takes you to the relevant page or to a list of relevant pages.

There is even a members only site for those who want to access to even more stuff. I teach and consult on all these topics - see my Services page.
