Model driven architecture (MDA) represents a challenge for the companies to increase the benefits of code generation, creating systems by using common libraries and standards. This paper presents the Quantools that is a result of a 5-year project, introducing the benefits of MDA in a Brazilian software development company. Quantools is based on the concept of cartridges that specify the transformation rules and constraints for a particular domain. The tool may be integrated to the modeling activities of the system to check the correctness of models according to the standards previously defined. The Quantools and its Cartridges execute transformations to generate the source code in a particular domain.
