ESTECO is the owner of VOLTA, the collaborative web platform for Simulation Process and Data Management and design optimization, and modeFRONTIER, the comprehensive solution for process automation and optimization in the engineering design process. Since the foundation as a university spin-off, ESTECO has contributed to several funded research projects and established a close relationship with academia. Professors around the world use the modeFRONTIER optimization solution to teach students how to approach multidisciplinary engineering problems in real life.
Expertise related to the project
ESTECO develops modeFRONTIER (a multi-objective design environment), Volta (a collaborative web platform for simulation process and data management and design optimization) and Cardanit (a web designer for workflows in ISO standard BPMN and DMN). All these three products already in commerce will be used to base developments for the MUSICODE software platform. ESTECO will provide its expertise in software development by contributing to the use of well-consolidated software development practices based on agile methodologies and test-driven development in a continuous integration and continuous deployment cycle.
