On Demand Webinars

The biggest challenges in model testing are to set up the requirements correctly, so that these can be utilized in test evaluation, and to systematically create test cases to stimulate the model for simulation accordingly.
In previous webinars, we have shown you how to use the MES Test Manager ® (MTest) and its feature MTest Assessable Requirement Syntax (MARS) to write down the requirements in a formalized pattern that still resembles natural language. These MARS requirements can be used to systemize and clearly present the requirements. Moreover, they can also be used to automatically generate requirement observer functions (assessments) to evaluate the test results according to the requirements.
In this webinar, we will show you a new MTest feature - a prototype to utilize MARS requirements for functional test sequence generation. By analyzing the requirement conditions, MARS can automatically derive signal behaviors to stimulate the model according to a requirement, and generate appropriate test sequences automatically. As a result, MARS will provide sequences for a given test object serving a high requirement coverage. [...]

Are you also currently faced with the challenge of adapting your software development to an ISO 26262 compliant process in keeping with the 2018 update?

This development process consistent with the latest update is the standard set for the development of safety relevant software. Our next webinar includes a step-by-step tutorial about how to set up your development process in accordance with ISO 26262:2018.

Do you want to get a compact overview of the new functions offered by the current releases of MES M-XRAY® and MES Model Examiner® (MXAM)? How can you improve and simplify guideline testing and structure analysis of your software models?

We will demonstrate why it makes sense to use the latest tool versions. Among the highlights of the latest versions are the comprehensive wizard for custom guideline selection, the improvements in the highlighting of active view filters, and the consistency validation for guidelines included in multiple documents selected in the same project.

Is the embedded automotive software industry reaching a breaking point?

Some observations:

  • Many companies have multiple openings for software/control developer
  • Economic forecasts are indicating 100s of thousands of projected unfilled technical openings in the upcoming years
  • Automotive software content per vehicle on high end vehicles (100 million lines of code) already require about 3-4 times the size and hence complexity of aerospace software on a plane
  • With emerging applications such as ADAS, electrification, autonomous, the quantity of automotive software is rapidly increasing
  • Expensive product recalls due to software errors are rising

With all this pressure on the embedded software development industry, would reducing the effort to generate high quality software by up to 50% in select process steps be beneficial?

This new tool speeds up and simplifies the creation and editing of Simulink® models and can be used for all Simulink® versions from R2009b and later. After selecting specific elements (signals, blocks), actions are offered that automate frequently used operations – especially operations that consist of several substeps. Performing these tasks manually can often be laborious or time-consuming and thus error-prone. An example of this is the addition of signals across multiple hierarchy levels. This kind of additional input signal can now, for instance, be added from an upper level to a subsystem in a low level with a single action. This presentation will introduce a number of these actions and show how this tool makes working with Simulink® models – especially big models – easier, faster, and more reliable.

Is your company trying to implement an ISO 26262 compliant software development process, or getting pressure to implement this in the near future ?
Have you come across Part 6 Table 3 yet ? Scary isn't it.
Many people tend to "freak out" over Table 3 and how to implement the software architectural design features that the ISO 26262 standard recommends.
This webinar will help to tame the beastly Table 3 and show that implementing these software architecture design principles is feasible.

The MES Test Manager is the established tool for requirements-based testing of software models. The comprehensive documentation of a test and its results is essential in order to reliably assess the quality and completeness of the test, particularly with regard to safeguarding safety-relevant functions.
Presenting a short introduction of the significant functions and new features that come with the current version of MTest, this webinar will also focus on the advanced editor for MTCD test case specification and the interface change management.

The MTest Assessable Requirements Syntax (MARS) is a formal method of requirements specification in the MES Test Manager® (MTest). It enables requirements to be automatically 'translated' into executable assessment functions. MARS requirements can be used throughout the entire process as they are easily readable by anyone. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how this method can be employed to achieve consistency and clarity in evaluations, assessments, and checks as well as when generating test cases.

Modeling guidelines for Simulink® can have many corporate benefits, not the least of which is helping to make the overall software development process more efficient. A net result is to more easily have an on-time release.
As functional safety continues to become more important, a modeling style guide is a key work product for ISO 26262 compliance.
This webinar was presented by our VP of MES Inc. from the U.S., Scott Ranville. He presented some of his favorite guidelines for detailed design and software architecture considerations including breaking Stateflow® into smaller, individually testable, pieces.

Modeling guidelines and design principles can help you as a function developer when creating software models. Skeptical? Take part in our web meeting and we will change your mind!
This lecture is an introduction to modeling guidelines and static model analysis using MATLAB Simulink / Stateflow and TargetLink models in the MISRA and ISO context. In addition to best practices for modeling guidelines and model complexity, we will explain the basic operating principles of static model analysis. We will also show you how to conduct automatic policy verification and correction, complexity analysis and how to check for identical subsystems (clones) in software models.

Agile methods have become state of the art in software development. Agile teams are able to react to changing requirements, delivering intermediate solutions for rapid feedback. Model-based development, by its very nature, contributes to early validation and is hence in line with agile principles. What are the challenges in agile model-based software development? How are challenges addressed?

This webinar provides an introduction to the world of modeling guidelines and static model analysis of MATLAB® Simulink®/ Stateflow® and TargetLink® models. In addition to outlining how to apply modeling guidelines and calculate model complexity, we will illustrate the basic functions of the MES Tools for static model analysis. We will demonstrate automatic guideline checking and model correction with MES Model Examiner® (MXAM) and structure and complexity analysis with MES M-XRAY® (MXRAY).

Do you know how to fulfill the requirements for detailed design in model-based design?
Detailed design is an essential activity during software development in general. Approaches to detailed design are well-known for programming languages like C. Nowadays, model-based development evolved as alternative programming paradigm. Still, the well-known requirements for detailed design cannot be straightforwardly mapped to model-based design. The presentation shows how the Base Practices for detailed design according to ASPICE PRM SWE.3 can be achieved in model-based development.
