Congratulations B612 team on Label Observeur du design 2018
The Airbus team that has designed the PolarSys B612 font has been awarded the distinction “La Label Observeur du design 2018”. The Observeur du design is awarded for good design practices and innovation and is open to a very broad range of designs including products, physical services space and images.
The B612 Font was designed by a human factors and typographical team at Airbus to optimize readability and reading comfort in cockpit displays. You can read more about it in Laurent Spaggiari’s article for EclipseCon France 2017. You can download the font from the B612 project pages.
As an award-winner, the B612 team qualifies as a contestant in the “Étoiles Observeur du design 2018” contest. Judging takes place later in December 2017.
The RobMoSys EU project, where Eclipse is a partner, has announced its first open call for projects that will contribute to the RobMoSys vision of 'better models, better tools, better robotic systems'. 6-7 selected projects will be funded to a maximum of EUR 300,000. Find out more on the RobMoSys open call page or participate in the Brokerage day in Frankfurt on 24.08.2017.
PRFC has recently joined PolarSys and the Capella IC bringing over 25 years experience in consulting and training on System and Software Modeling with ARCADIA/Capella, SysML, UML, OMT, and SADT.
A proposal has been made to establish the Capella Industry Consortium (IC) at PolarSys.
The vision of the Capella IC is to host the Capella Ecosystem stakeholders in a vendor neutral way, organized by an open governance model. It will allow them to better collaborate, share investment and best practices, and leverage Open Innovation to co-develop new MBSE capabilities.
The main goal of the consortium is to support the PolarSys Capella solution, in association with the field-proven Arcadia methodology, to become the leading Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) solution. Targeted for industrial users, Capella provides a mature, full-featured, sustainable solution which can be widely distributed as an open source alternative to existing proprietary modeling tools.
The official announcement of the Capella IC will take place on June 20th as part of Capella Day, the first event dedicated to the Capella community, held in conjunction with EclipseCon France 2017. You are invited to review the draft Charter and provide comments on the PolarSys mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
