Press release from: Excel Software

Excel Software released major enhancements to MacA&D for software design and requirements management. The companion MacTranslator tool generates design models from source code for procedural, object-oriented or SQL languages. Both tools are now Universal macOS applications optimized to run at native speed on either Intel or Apple Silicon computers. The applications include UI enhancements for Big Sur and are delivered with a code signed, notarized installer.

MacA&D 6 supports flow charts, 14-diagram UML notation for object-oriented design, structured analysis & design, data models, Business Process Models (BPMN), screen prototypes, system models with simulation, Pert charts and real-time, multi-task design. The integrated environment includes data dictionary, requirements management, code generation, reengineering, design namespaces and scriptable reports.

MacA&D includes model editors for process, data, class, state, screen, structure, object and task models. All model editors support multiple diagram levels with table of contents, several diagram notations, configurable color schemes, scaling, rich customization and navigational features plus extensive verification and balancing reports of information flow and consistency between diagrams.

MacTranslator 5 scans source code to extract design information into text files that are imported into MacA&D. The process from textual code to graphic design is fully automated.

When a developer selects the code folders, language and options, MacTranslator extract the design information. That data is imported into MacA&D to populate the data dictionary and generate a stack of diagrams that reflect the code structure. Selectable features control generated diagrams, presentation options or identification of execution threads for representation on separate diagrams.

Together MacA&D and MacTranslator support design, code generation and reengineering for most popular programing languages:

* UML Class Models to and from Xojo, Swift, C++, Objective-C, PHP, Java or Delphi
* Rich Data Models to and from SQL Schema with Indexes, Triggers, Primary and Foreign Keys
* Structure Charts to and from procedural C, Pascal, Basic, PHP or Fortran

With 30 years of continuous development and real-world experience by thousands of developers, MacA&D and MacTranslator support most popular software design methods and notations. These tools are used for desktop, server, embedded, mobile and web applications.

MacA&D 6 and MacTranslator 5 run on all macOS 10.10 or newer computers with Intel 64-bit or ARM 64-bit processors. Both tools are available in Single User and Site License editions. MacA&D is scalable from a single user to a large development team with capabilities like design namespaces, powerful import and export features and multi-user team documents.

MacA&D comes in a Standard edition at $395, Desktop edition at $595, Developer edition at $995 or as a monthly subscription.
