AADL Inspector

AADL Inspector is a model processing framework for Critical Software Architecture Models. Based on the most recent version of the SAE-AS5506 (AADL) standard, it embeds a set of timing analysis, simulation and code generation tools. The tool also provides customizable input model converters for UML profiles or Domain Specific Modelling Languages.
