The ASCENS project deals with designing systems as ensembles of adaptive components. Among the outputs of the ASCENS project are multiple tools that address particular issues in designing the ensembles, ranging from support for early stage formal modeling to runtime environment for executing and monitoring ensemble implementations. The goal of this chapter is to provide a compact description of the individual tools, which is supplemented by additional downloadable material on the project website.
