Fine-Tuning Model Advisor Analysis
Today I welcome my friend Nishaat Vasi to introduce a new feature of Simulink Verification and Validation: Model Advisor Exclusions.
Nishaat: Hey Guy, did you notice the new Model Advisor Exclusions feature in R2012a?
Guy: There are so many new features every release... I think I missed that one. What is it?
Nishaat: When you create models, I bet you sometimes use the Model Advisor.
Guy: Of Course! Model Advisor checks are very useful to ensure design consistency in large modeling environments.
Nishaat: Using exclusions, you will now be able to fine-tune the Model Advisor analysis. This should save you time if there are blocks or subsystems in your model that do not need to be checked.
Guy: Cool, how does that work?
Nishaat: First, identify and right-click on the model elements you want to exclude from Model Advisor analysis and select from which checks you want it excluded.
Nishaat: This will launch the Model Advisor Exclusion Editor
Nishaat: Run the Model Advisor analysis and you will see in the report when an exclusion rule is used in a check.
Guy: Pretty cool, I'll definitely start using Model Advisor Exclusions soon!
Now it's your turn
Will exclusions be useful in your workflow? Leave us a comment here.
