What is most valuable?

We like using the static analysis and code refactoring, which are very valuable because of our requirements to meet safety critical levels and reliability.

How has it helped my organization?

The tool helps the team to think beforehand about corner cases or potential bugs that might arise in real-time. This, in turn, increases the efficiency of the project as well as the team.

What needs improvement?

The way to define the rules is too complex. The definition/rules for static analysis could be automated according to various SILs, so as to avoid confusion. It should be semi-flexible. However, this may be due to my limited experience.
