License options

medini analyze supports three types of licenses

  • Network license - the license is managed by a network server and can be used on any workstation connected to that server in a mutually exclusive way (floating license).
  • Dongle license - the license is provided on an USB-dongle and can be used on any workstation to which the dongle is physically attached to.
  • Single-node license - the license can only be used at the workstation for which the license has been issued.


medini analyze is offered as a base package with a number of optional modules. The optional modules may be combined with each other and may also use different license options. In addition, we also provide three undividable suite versions which contain a subset of all modules.

medini analyze is an integrated tool solution which efficiently implements core activities of functional safety, reliability & quality analysis and integrates them with the existing engineering processes. medini analyze is an integrated solution for ISO 26262 activities with support for concept, system, software and hardware levels. It integrates with several tools in the engineering environment and produces safety work products in an automated fashion. We provide the following services around usage and adoption of medini analyze in the customer environment;

  • Training on ISO 26262 using medini analyze - 2 days training on ISO 26262 are integrated with the hands-on usage of medini analyze wherein the participants understand the requirements of ISO 26262 with practical application of the ISO 26262 concepts using medini analyze
  • Pilot project - Support in piloting usage of medini analyze in a project that requires adoption of ISO 26262 and developing the safety artifacts. This includes usage of features, importing / exporting data from various engineering tools, developing all necessary safety artifacts, developing a safety case and building traceability across all safety artifacts.
  • Integration with existing tools landscape - medini analyze is developed to seamlessly integrate with most popularly engineering tools used for requirements management, architecture modelling and Simulink models. Where necessary, our services include developing connectors and adaptors to integrate medini analyze with the other popular tools thus enabling users to leverage and protect their existing tools investment.
  • Data migration - Most of the product development is done by reusability of existing system requirements and system architecture. In order to maximize the use of these artifacts, we support data migration from legacy systems to medini analyze. This enables the users to reuse existing system description and related artifacts for new application programs requiring ISO 26262 adoption.

Vieawpoint-Based Modeling - Towards Defining the Viewpoint Concept and Implications for Supporting Modeling Tools
Paper at International Workshop on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISA-12) Viewpoint-based modeling is an important recent development in software engineering. It is likely to boost the wider use of modeling techniques because it allows to tailor existing tools with respect to the different stakeholders in software design. The paper reports on results from the VIBAM project in which viewpoint concepts are investigated. We give an overview of the most important contributions from literature regarding viewpoint concepts from which we derived the position that we take in the VIBAM project. After presenting VIBAM's position we derive features that we consider important for tools that support viewpoint features. We plan to integrate these features in the commercial modeling tools MODELIO and MEDINI ANALYZE to the end of the VIBAM project.

Safety Analysis and Design for ISO 26262 - Model Based and Tool Supported Paper at SAE World Congress 2013
Modern development processes put architecture and design models in the center of system engineering activities. With the increasing application of software (SW) controlled functions such development processes have obtained a high significance in the automotive industry too. In addition, functional safety standards such as ISO 26262 issued by International Standardization Organization (ISO) require safety analysis procedures to be tightly integrated with these engineering activities. The authors show a solution to tackle the need for such integration by using architecture and design models as a single source of information for functional safety analysis activities and methods. Moreover, a seamless round-trip approach between the activities of the system design, the requirements engineering and the functional safety analysis activities is presented.International Workshop on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISA-12).

Safety Element out of Context - A Practical Approach
ISO 26262 is the actual standard for Functional Safety of automotive E/E (Electric/Electronic) systems. One of the challenges in the application of the standard is the distribution of safety related activities among the participants in the supply chain. This paper also proposes improvements and extensions of the SEooC concept which may lead to an increased usability of the approach in modern development lifecycles. In order to demonstrate and evaluate the proposed modifications of the SEooC approach, a concrete example (the implementation of a generic AUTOSAR complex device driver for electric motor control) will be described in the paper. The chosen case study is generic and representative for a large spectrum of functional safety relevant automotive applications like Electric Power Steering, Dynamic Steering, X-by-Wire, etc.
