Automate Coverage Workflows

Customize and automate model coverage collection

Model coverage commands let you automate the entire model coverage process with MATLAB® scripts. You can use model coverage commands to set up model coverage tests, execute them in simulation, and store and report the results.

Commands for Automating Model Coverage Tasks

Using model coverage commands lets you automate the entire model coverage process with MATLAB scripts.

Create Tests with cvtest

Create a test object that specifies the model or part of the model tested.

Run Tests with cvsim

Execute (simulate) the test object. This creates a results object for the test object.

Create HTML Reports with cvhtml

Create a report for the results object.

Save Test Runs to File with cvsave

Save the test object and its results object in a file.

Load Stored Coverage Test Results with cvload

Load the file containing test and results objects to create new reports of model coverage data.

Retrieve Coverage Details from Results

Retrieve specific coverage information after simulation using MATLAB commands.

Use Coverage Commands in a Script

Example script that demonstrates how to use the model coverage commands.

Creating and Executing Test Cases

This example shows how to use Simulink® Coverage™ component verification functions to log input signals, create a harness model, and execute test cases.
