We’ve had early access to some of Synthis’ beta builds of Adalon, their visual process modeling tool. It’s pretty cool technology which allows you visually define, in our case, Fusebox applications, generating a ton of useful documentation and skeleton code. It speeds up the technical specification phase of our work significantly and also removes a ton of inconsistencies that always seem to creep in when multiple people are defining projects. That eventually translates into higher quality projects in shorter timelines.
Today, Synthis released a Fusebox 4 generator, built by WebLinc. This will allow Adalon users who have already spec’d out Fusebox 3 applications to convert to FB4 by just selecting a different menu option.
