New guideline documents available in MXAM DRIVE

MXAM DRIVE v.3.8 with extended content addressing Embedded Coder® users and ASCET® users.

Model Engineering Solutions (MES), software specialists from Berlin, enhanced their software tool MES Model Examiner DRIVE® (MXAM DRIVE) with two new guideline documents. Adherence to modeling guidelines is the best practice for improving the quality of software models. However, with over 500 guidelines published by well-known consortia such as MISRA® and MAAB, plus a huge number of company-specific guidelines, selecting the right guidelines can be a challenging task. MES provides thematically structured and detailed guideline documents in MXAM DRIVE for diverse user groups to support the selection of guidelines. MES releases two further documents with MXAM DRIVE v.3.8 that focus especially on Embedded Coder® and ASCET® users.

MES Embedded Coder Guideline Document

Selected best practice guidelines directly address users of the MATLAB Simulink®/Stateflow® and Embedded Coder® toolchain.

The document contains 96 guidelines structured in relation to the respective scope and topic of the guidelines. These main topics cover layout and design guidelines (naming conventions, modeling of data flow, executions order, and block/text appearance), functional model guidelines, and improvement of code generation (language subset, defensive implementation techniques, established design principles, strong typing etc.).

The MES Embedded Coder Guideline Document v.1 is available in MXAM DRIVE Functional Safety Solution starting from v.3.8.

MES ASCET Guideline Document

MES provides the first comprehensive compilation of best practice guidelines for users of the ASCET platform of ETAS.

The document contains 39 guidelines, newly published by MES. The main topics cover modeling and layout (established design principles, documentation, design of algorithms), implementation (strict data typing, data consistency), integration, and configuration.

The MES ASCET Guideline Document v.1 is available upon request.
