Software developers need to understand how a software system works to
introduce new behaviour, correct faults, tune the performance of the system,
amongst other tasks. As a system grows in size and as it incorporates more
and more libraries, frameworks and components that the developers did not
themselves write, it becomes harder and harder to understand how the system
The AVID tool supports the investigation of large portions of a system's
execution from a software architectural view of the system. A developer is
able to gain an understanding of how components in the architecture interact
over an execution.

main AVID page.
