Ansys and Honeywell Accelerate Safety-critical Software Development

Technology collaboration ensures safety-critical systems for aerospace, automotive and other industries are automatically validated, secure and reliable

Key Highlights

  • Honeywell Aerospace is using Ansys to accelerate the development, analysis and certification of safety-critical embedded systems
  • Integrating Honeywell’s in-house model-based verification solutions within Ansys’ model-based development environment enables confident design, simulation and testing of embedded code for autonomous vehicles, electric aircraft and safety-critical code

PITTSBURGH, PA, October 28, 2021 –Through a new collaboration, Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) is providing Honeywell Aerospace with model-based development solutions to accelerate the development, analysis and certification of safety-critical embedded systems in autonomous vehicles, electric aircraft and safety-critical code across industry verticals.

Safety-critical embedded software must meet strict and complex industry regulations. Verifying and validating this critical software is costly, time-consuming and labor-intensive. Like many manual processes, it can also be error prone. Honeywell and Ansys’ robust model-based workflow extends companies’ testing and analysis capabilities — delivering automation, efficiency and value throughout the software development process. The integration of the Honeywell’s in-house model-based verification solutions within Ansys’ model-based development environment enables confident design, simulation and testing of embedded code for a broad range of applications.

Ansys and Honeywell ensure safety-critical systems for aerospace, automotive and other industries are automatically validated, secure and reliable.

“Ansys shares our commitment to transforming software development, and this collaboration will lower development costs and cut down the time it takes to bring Honeywell products to market,” said Jeff Radke, director of advanced technology at Honeywell Aerospace. “Through this collaboration, we remove complex manual processes and deliver significant benefits by streamlining workflows and minimizing the risk of code errors, freeing engineers to innovate the next generation of systems and products.”

“If an embedded system contains imperfect code, it can lead to devastating and complete system failure,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “Ansys SCADE-certified code generators ensure the highest level of safety and empower system and software engineers with predictive accuracy and speed. Our collaboration with Honeywell delivers an integrated and comprehensive solution for industrial customers developing safety-critical software.”
