As a user of Simulink you often don’t need the high amount of features of the tool – you only need to view and explore models without any need to edit them.
Model Viewer is very lightweight. You can visualize even large models – that contain several thousand model elements – up to 8-times faster than Simulink does. Review and analyze your Simulink models even offline – without any expensive Matlab licenses.
With Model Viewer you are able to navigate around and inspect diagrams with a fast drill down of the system hierarchy, e.g. with a simple double click. Breadcrumbs as well as the Outline view show the structure of the model and allow to navigate quickly to the location you are interested in.
Finding specific blocks or parameters is essential when working with and analyzing large models. Thus, the search function of Model Viewer gives you the possibility to find and navigate to search results quickly.
Understanding how signals are processed from inputs to outputs is especially useful when analyzing your Simulink model. The advanced signal tracing functionality of Model viewer provides everything you need. See the flow of signals at a glance in a dedicated view.
Create links and navigate between model elements and documents of different formats such as PDF, Microsoft Word and others to understand your models quickly. With DocConnect you can bundle your models and the augmented documentation as Model Manuals and share them with your colleagues so that calibrators, testers and other roles can benefit from them.
You can provide your model & documentation bundles to partners / third parties and you can be sure that they will be able to view, navigate, and search your models but are not able to copy your valuable intellectual property (IP). All Simulink models in the bundle are safeguarded using encryption. Once you shared them they cannot be edited afterwards.
Traceability is a need for safety-critical systems. Link model elements such as blocks, signals, properties, states, and transitions to any relevant artifact like requirements, architectural elements, test specifications or else. Use the bidirectional trace links for navigation between tools and trace analysis.
