This two-day course describes techniques for applying Model-Based Design in a common design workflow. It provides guidance on managing and sharing Simulink® models when working in a large-scale project environment.

Topics include:

  • Implementing interface control of Simulink subsystems and models
  • Managing requirements in Simulink models
  • Partitioning models using Simulink subsystems, libraries, and model references
  • Managing a model and all its dependencies
  • Controlling the location, scope, and code generation behavior of model data
  • Establishing and enforcing modeling standards
  • Documenting and sharing a Simulink model
