Navigate with the Surrogate Module

Navigate Between Requirements and the Surrogate Module in the DOORS Database

The surrogate module and the requirements in the formal module are both in the DOORS® database. When you synchronize your model, the DOORS software creates links between the surrogate module objects and the requirements in the DOORS database.

Navigating between the requirements and the surrogate module allows you to review the requirements that have links to the model without starting the Simulink® software.

To navigate from the surrogate module transmission object to the requirement in the formal module:

  1. In the surrogate module object for the transmission subsystem, right-click the right-facing red arrow.

  2. Select the requirement name.

    The formal module opens, at the Transmission Requirements object.

To navigate from the requirement in the formal module to the surrogate module:

  1. In the Transmission Requirements object in the formal module, right-click the left-facing orange arrow.

  2. Select the object name.

    The surrogate module for sf_car_doors opens, at the object associated with the transmission subsystem.

Navigate Between DOORS Requirements and the Simulink Module via the Surrogate Module

You can create links that allow you to navigate from Simulink objects to DOORS requirements and from DOORS requirements to the model. If you synchronize your model, the surrogate module serves as an intermediary for the navigation in both directions. The surrogate module allows you to navigate in both directions even if you remove the direct link from the model object to the DOORS formal module.

Navigate from a Simulink Object to a Requirement via the Surrogate Module

To navigate from the transmission subsystem in the sf_car_doors model to a requirement in the DOORS formal module:

  1. In the sf_car_doors model, right-click the transmission subsystem and select Requirements Traceability > 1. "DOORS Surrogate Item". (The direct link to the DOORS formal module is also available.)

    The surrogate module opens, at the object associated with the transmission subsystem.

  2. To display the individual requirement, in the surrogate module, right-click the right-facing red arrow and select the requirement.

    The formal module opens, at Transmission Requirements.

Navigate from a Requirement to the Model via the Surrogate Module

To navigate from the Transmission Requirements requirement in the formal module to the transmission subsystem in the sf_car_doors model:

  1. In the formal module, in the Transmission Requirements object, right-click the left-facing orange arrow.

  2. Select the path to the linked surrogate object: /sf_car Project/sf_car_doors > 4. transmission.

    The surrogate module opens, at the transmission object.

  3. In the surrogate module, select MATLAB > Select item.

    The linked object is highlighted in sf_car_doors.
