Polarion Connector for Simulink® allows bi-directional traceability between Simulink models and Polarion REQUIREMENTS Work Items. You can navigate from Simulink model elements to its associated Polarion REQUIREMENTS Work Item and vice versa.
This bi-directionality along with versioning and audit trails help faciliate collaborative design and requirements reviews in Model-Based Design workflows. For example, you can track the impact of changed requirements on your design, allocate resources or release timelines earlier in the development process.
Alternatively, you can also publish the Simulink models as a design requirement artifact for Polarion Requirements. This design requirement is automatically exported into Polarion native environment and includes a Simulink model preview. You can link this published design item to your system requirements easily using the bi-directional linking feature to simplify impact analysis and conduct reviews online without requiring Simulink licenses.
The integration provides flexibility to create many-to-one links between Simulink Models and Polarion Requirement Work Items. You can create a link from multiple Simulink model elements to the same REQUIREMENT Work Item or link multiple REQUIREMENT Work Items to a single Simulink model element. The traceability information is stored both within the Simulink model and Polarion REQUIREMENTS enabling access from both the design and the requirements management environment.
Simulink, developed by MathWorks, is a data flow graphical programming language tool for modeling, simulating and analyzing multidomain dynamic systems. It offers tight integration with the rest of the MATLAB environment and can either drive MATLAB or be scripted from it.
