Founded in 2005 in Nantes (France), Obeo is a leader in Model Driven Engineering solutions. Obeo creates tools to make System Engineering easier and to help manage complex systems with Model Based tools. Obeo has a long-time commitment to the Eclipse Foundation as an Eclipse Strategic Member. Obeo leads several Open Source projects like Acceleo (, a code generator, and Intent (, a tool for writing useful and

Obeo promotes an approach based on Domain Specific Languages (DSL): you define your own vocabulary for your domain, and you easily create your own graphical designer. This new approach is implemented in Obeo Designer which simplifies all the technical work by providing a viewpoint configuration engine. Industry players from Space, Aircraft, Transportation, Energy create their own System Engineering solution on top of this platform. They share with researchers and other partners common Open Source extensions like UML Designer, SysML Designer or Marte Designer.
