Refactoring of Simulink Models

In the world of textual programming, especially object-oriented programming, refactoring has become an established technique for improving the structural quality of code. With refactoring, the structure of a code body is improved through small restructuring steps without its external behavior being altered. Refactoring Simulink models by restructuring them is also a very common, yet highly time-consuming and error-prone activity. Unfortunately, tool support for refactoring Simulink models is limited. In this session, we present the idea and first results of our current effort to develop a refactoring technique with tool support for Simulink models.
