Simulation-Stateflow Guidelines

Untitled-3MathWorks Automotive Advisory Board (MAAB)

A group of automotive manufacturers and suppliers that work closely together with MathWorks.

They put a guidelines to stipulate important basic rules for describing Simulink / Stateflow models to allow for a simple, common understanding by authors and users in operating automotive control system of control models and achieving:

  • System integration without problems

  • Well-defined interfaces

  • Uniform appearance of models, code, and documentation

  • Reusable models

  • Readable models

  • Problem-free exchange of models

  • A simple, effective process

  • Professional documentation

  • Understandable presentations

  • Fast software changes

  • Cooperation with subcontractors

  • Successful transitions of research or redevelopment projects to product development

You can recommend guidelines for one or more of the following reasons:

Readability

Easily understood algorithms

  • Readable models

  • Uniform appearance of models, code, and documentation

  • Clean interfaces

  • Professional documentation

Workflow

Effective development process and workflow

  • Ease of maintenance

  • Rapid model changes

  • Reusable components

  • Problem-free exchange of models

  • Model portability

Simulation

Efficient simulation and analysis

  • Simulation speed

  • Simulation memory

  • Model instrumentation

Verification and Validation

Ability to verify and validate a model and generated code with:

  • Requirements traceability

  • Testing

  • Problem-free system integration

  • Clean interfaces

Code generation

Generation of code that is efficient and effective for embedded systems (ROM,RAM efficiency)

  • Fast software changes

  • Robustness of generated code

MAAB includes the subgroups J-MAAB and NA-MAAB:

J-MAAB (Japan MAAB) A subgroup of MAAB that includes automotive manufacturers and suppliers in Japan and works closely with MathWorks. Rules with J-MAAB scope are local to Japan.

NA-MAAB (North American MAAB) A subgroup of MAAB that includes automotive manufacturers and suppliers in the United States and Europe and works closely with MathWorks. Rules with NAMAAB scope are local to the United States and Europe
