Develop, manage, and execute simulation-based tests
Simulink Test™ provides tools for authoring, managing, and executing systematic, simulation-based tests. You can create nonintrusive test harnesses to test models and subsystems. Simulink Test includes a test sequence block that lets you construct complex test sequences and assessments, and a test manager that lets you manage and execute tests. It enables functional, baseline, equivalence, and back-to-back testing, including software-in-the-loop (SIL) and processor-in-the-loop (PIL). You can generate reports, archive and review test results, rerun failed tests, and debug the component or system under test.
The test harness in Simulink Test lets you test components without creating a separate test model. You can apply pass and fail criteria that include absolute and relative tolerances, limits, logical checks, and temporal conditions. Test execution can be automated or customized with setup and cleanup scripts. Simulink Test stores test cases and their results, creating a repository for reviewing and investigating failures. You can link requirements to a test case captured in Microsoft® Word®, IBM® Rational® DOORS®, and other documents (with Simulink Verification and Validation™).
