While these autocode generation tools still have a ways to go, especially where embedded systems are concerned but increasingly, aircraft design is doing away with the traditional “black-box” approach anyway these tools are getting more powerful and the day will come, probably before I retire, when software engineering will typically involve more engineering and less coding.
Model Driven Development (MDD), particularly modeling that provides code reuse, autocode generation and re-porting of APIs with changes in underlying hardware, has been shown to provide a significant ROI over non-MDD comparable developments.
