Systems‌ ‌control‌ ‌engineering‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌complex‌ ‌field‌ ‌and‌ ‌control‌ ‌engineering‌ ‌projects‌ ‌often‌ ‌require‌ multiple‌ ‌models‌ ‌and‌ ‌multiple‌ ‌documents.‌ ‌Often‌ ‌these‌ ‌artifacts‌ ‌appear‌ ‌as‌ ‌single‌ ‌files‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ file‌ ‌system,‌ ‌on‌ ‌external‌ ‌devices‌ ‌or‌ ‌within‌ ‌a‌ ‌version‌ ‌control‌ ‌system.‌ A systems control model often does not exist on its own. E.g. the model developer creates the model and writes a documentation about its behavior. Other users need that documentation when using the models to understand the underlying concepts, parameters, etc. The YAKINDU Model Viewer addresses these tasks with two features:

  • Create hyperlinks between model elements and documentation sections that can be followed in both directions
  • Create bundles of all associated models and documentation documents that belong to a certain project or project state
