The U.S. Air Force develops software projects with high complexity and must often maintain them for decades. The sheer size of projects and the use of old and less-common coding languages (Fortran, Ada, etc) makes analysis and maintenance a major undertaking for the developers involved.
To analyze, explore, and understand an operational flight program written in Jovial.
Understand was used for the following applications:
-Source code exploration
-Jovial code maintenance
The project was completed successfully and Understand™ helped the developer to rapidly produce an intuitive structure of the source code. It saved several hours of analysis time and provided an accurate understanding of the complex legacy project.
