cyclomatic complexity tools in C for state machines

thread227-208347: Software Complexity Analysis

In line with the closed thread above, does anyone come across with any tool for managing complexities for state machines implemented in C/C++/C# ?

RE: cyclomatic complexity tools in C for state machines

Not yet... though to be fair I haven't put much time into looking for one.  I'm just real careful when making state machines.

RE: cyclomatic complexity tools in C for state machines

You are right, care should be taken when creating state machines but it can get out of hand e.g. it becomes a state machine within a state machine within a state machine with each state machine having really a huge number of states each with really numerous number of entry and exit conditions.  I haven't seen any white paper addressing this complexity issue.  A visualization tool is necessary for this kind of software engine implementation that I think the original writer of this thread need to be aware of when he was looking for software tools.  Think of it as a CAD/CAE tools for implementing complex software state machines. Seen MATLAB Stateflow or SGV sarc Crystal flow.  Any feedbacks regarding these tools or other tools?

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.

White Paper – Collaboration in the PLM Context
The influence exerted by the Internet of Things (IoT) means that there is a steadily growing need for collaboration in industry. Partners from new industries and areas of application need to be integrated in cross-company business processes to ensure that the lifecycle of smart, connected products can be managed from end to end.
