December 4 - 5, 2017GermanAgenda/Registration form December 2017 at Pfefferberg
in Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg (Germany)


The 2-day training workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the principles, processes, and objectives of model testing – from requirements to model tests. We offer step-by-step guidance from creating requirements-based test specifications, through testing TargetLink/Embedded Coder models, to automated test evaluation based on test assessments and back-to-back/regression tests. In particular, we will emphasize ISO 26262-compliant test management and explain the test process for MiL and SiL, as well as tracing requirements to test specifications and test assessments. You can learn all process steps through hands-on practical exercises using Simulink and TargetLink/Embedded Coder models and the MES Test Manager (MTest) as model test framework. MTest will be provided to you during the training workshop.

This training workshop is also available as an on-site workshop.
In this case our instructors can tailor the curriculum to meet your specific needs.

Target audience

The workshop is aimed at developers, testers, test managers, and quality managers who focus on model-based development of embedded software based on MATLAB®/Simulink® related to Embedded Coder®/TargetLink®.
