The Axivion GmbH in Stuttgart, Germany is a spin-off from the Bauhaus project. It develops commercial tools and offers professional services for evolution and maintainance of existing software. The results of the Bauhaus research are the primary foundation for the tools and services developed.
The Software Engineering Group cooperates withe the Fraunhofer Institue for experimental Software-Engineering in the context of the publicly founded Project "ArQue - Architecture-centric Quality Engineering".
Together wir Prof. Michael Godfrey and the Software Architecture Group (SWAG) we do research on software clones. The properties of clones and methods for clone management are ivestigated in regular research visits. This cooperation is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service.
The Bauhaus project is run in close collaboration between the German universities of Bremen and Stuttgart. In Stuttgart the Institute for Software Technology (ISTE) with its Department for programming languages and compilers participates with a slightly different focus.
