CCM - Configurable Component Modeler

The software CCM – Configurable Component Modeler – is developed to support synthesis, modeling, analysis and configuration of object oriented system platforms according to the so called COPE methodology. It also serves as a repository for the elements of the platform (the CC models) in a PLM network with PDM and CAX tools.

The COPE methodology is an object oriented methodology for development of product platforms. The reusable items of the platform are described by a new type of platform elements that resembles sub-routines in computer software. The properties of such sub-routines can be controlled using parameters, and they can also be logically linked to other sub-routines with relations that can be described and controlled. The platform elements of the COPE methodology – the Configurable Components (CC) – are models of conceptual system families that work in a similar way.
