This product determined the next 15 years of his career. After successfully establishing the product in many European companies, Peter spent a year in California introducing CASE technology to many US companies. During this time he was in constant contact with the leading people in software methods. This resulted in PROMOD being the first product to implement the Hatley/Pirbhai real-time method. This happened before Hatley and Pirbhai were able to publish their book.
After his return to Europe he was responsible for strategic CASE marketing, which meant introducing productivity and quality methods on corporate levels. At that time he also managed a series of high level seminars, bringing top experts like Prof. Peter Chen, Tom DeMarco, David Parnas, Ed Yourdon and many others to Germany.
His work is concerned with better quality and higher productivity. To this end Dr. Hruschka has published several books and many articles. His publishing career started with the translation of McMenamin & Palmer's Essential Systems Analysis and DeMarco & Lister's Peopleware, followed by two books in German My way to CASE and CASE in Industrial Applications (Carl Hanser-Verlag) and Real-Time Systems - State of Practice (John Wiley). These books came from his European research project with British and French colleagues. For many years Peter Hruschka served on the editorial board of the Springer magazine Informatik - Forschung und Entwicklung (Research and Development in Computer Science) . Currently he is a member of the editorial board of the German Objekt Spektrum, where he writes a regular column on Object-Oriented Analysis and Design.
His latest books in German are "Agility kompakt", "Agile Softwareentwicklung für Embedded Real-Time Systems mit UML" coauthored with Chris Rupp and "Erfolgreich mit Objektorientierung", coauthored with some colleagues that try to spread new technologies in Germany.
When he is not working, he is usually found with his wife in some of the most scenic parts of world, trying to hit little white balls into holes that are far too small.
