The event is organized by Axini, Cordis SUITE and ISG Stuttgart, leaders in model based systems engineering. Together we showcase the broad possibilities in which MBSE can be applied and how it impacts software quality.


Founded in 2007 and based in Amsterdam, Axini helps to deliver complex software products on time without concessions on quality. Our unique testing platform gives early insights in potential issues and prevents surprises late in the project. The Axini approach is based on more than 30 years of academic research and is proven to work at the complex systems of, among others, ProRail, Achmea and Thermo Fisher Scientific. This way, reliable software is guaranteed, no matter how complex.
