Embedded Systems Innovation by TNO developed three generic tools to improve industrial applicability. POOSL provides an integrated editing, debugging and validating environment for system modelling, combined with a simulator. TRACE is a tool for visualizing quantitative analysis results. Design Framework (DF) aims for system architecting including architectural views, work flow support and the link of architectural reasoning to concrete modeling activities and artifacts. However, there is no integrated environment to support these three tools to work together. This project proposes a prototype to demonstrate cooperation between the three generic tools as an integrated environment for design-space exploration. The report describes the process that was applied to the new integrated environment, Exploration Experiment (EE). EE provides a platform to define an experiment by specifying a sequence of a model and executors. From DF, the user can execute a defined experiment and get the execution results automatically. In addition to the development of EE, this report also includes the process of the development of TRACE extensions. The extensions contain new functionalities of multiple Gantt Chart comparison and design-space visualizations, a standalone application and an executable JAVA Archive file.
