The EXTRACT project aims to improve the maintainability of complex industrial software systems, by developing a method for automated model extraction. The extracted model describes the behavior of the software system with focus on timing and resource usage, properties important for the performance as well as reliability. These properties are very hard to analyze without adequate models of the software. Models of this type are not available in industry today as they are hard to construct and maintain manually and no tools exists for this purpose. By automating the extraction of such models, we enable model-based impact analysis with respect to the system performance and reliability. By using the impact analysis during the design phase of new features, potential problems can be avoided early. This makes maintenance more efficient and predictable.
