Synchronizing your Simulink® model with a surrogate module offers the following advantages:
You can navigate from a requirement to a Simulink object without modifying the requirements modules.
You avoid cluttering your requirements modules with inserted navigation objects.
The DOORS® database contains complete information about requirements links. You can review requirements links and verify traceability, even if the Simulink software is not running.
You can use DOORS reporting features to analyze requirements coverage.
You can separate the requirements tracking work from the Simulink model developers' work, as follows:
Systems engineers can establish requirements links to models without using the Simulink software.
Model developers can capture the requirements information using synchronization and store it with the model.
You can resynchronize a model with a new surrogate module, updating any model changes or specifying different synchronization options.
