Read the following extract from the IBM Rational Rose Real-Time document set and create a model for the system controller object.

Watch again the videos of oAW (openArchitectureWare), which is also downloadable from
Pay special attention to how it is used to generate code from statecharts.

Visit the openArchitectureWare wiki for further information.

Come up with some application ideas. Where could/would you use it ?

SMC - Finite State Machine Compiler (Java)
This ZIP file contains the "Java version of the SMC".
It's in the form of an executable jar file and is able to generate both Java and C++ code. The source is not (yet) given.
However, the ZIP contains a description of the operation.
