Each project should follow a specific coding standard to ease readability and maintenance of the source code, and reduce the insertion of errors. Depending on the requirements of the project, a set of guidelines can help to achieve the desired level of performance, portability, code complexity...
There are many ASIS tools that can be used to check automatically the adherence of Ada source code to the guidelines.
