Accelerate product development by a factor of two
Bong developers were able to develop the application software on a virtual device (business code and graphical user interface) while the hardware and MICROEJ VEE software platform were designed by an other team.
Application development and hardware design were preformed in parallel and were validated separately: their integration only took a couple of weeks before getting to mass production.
Add new features quickly in an incremental manner
Bong could deliver a new feature within one week instead of five, which represents a dramatic increase in software development productivity.
This could be achieved by using Object Oriented Programming and component frameworks promoted by MicroEJ solutions that simplifies code changes for maintenance and upgrades.
Reuse software for the next product
To create a consistent product range (same branding) while leveraging latest electronic innovations (processing, low-power), Bong developers could take advantage of MicroEJ software portability across processors and RTOS’s to reuse their investment in Graphical User Interface (GUI) software design.
They could create product derivatives with new electronics without jeopardizing their software application.
