Model Driven Development - Mentor Graphics

Keywords: System Integration

Model-driven development provides a structure for managing complexity while, at each design stage, making it possible to directly link design functionality back to original requirements and functional specifications. A virtual prototyping infrastructure in which models from different domains can be integrated at each stage of the development life cycle allows system integration issues to be identified and addressed earlier, helping reduce overall program time and cost.

Model-Driven Development pervades the design flow

  • Early requirement validation
  • Define and verify safety-critical requirements
  • Help drive quality and traceability realization
  • Controlled standard-based implementations

Model Driven Development enables improved processes and products

  • Evaluate new ideas
  • Optimize designs for cost and manufacturability
  • Deliver the highest quality at the best cost

Modeling Transportation Systems - Mentor Graphics

Improved automation is also needed in the design of electrical, electronic and embedded software components, which require a stable and reliable software development environment for modeling, simulation, verification and testing of software interfaced to actual hardware.


System Modeling - Industries - Mentor Graphics

System modeling tools from Mentor Graphics allow models from different domains to be integrated at each phase of the design flow, allowing system integration issues to be identified and addressed earlier, and helping to reduce overall program time and costs in the design of complex medical electronic devices.


Medical Systems - Mentor Graphics

A multi-discipline development environment and concurrent design methodology provide continuity throughout the design, implementation, and validation phases of system development. Hardware and software development progresses in-sync, ensuring that changes in one development flow can immediately be analyzed for effects in complementary flows.


System Modeling - Mentor Graphics

Virtual system integration can take place at the time of system requirements definition or during preliminary or detailed design, allowing critical problems to be uncovered well before final system integration. True system modeling provides an interactive environment in which designers can verify their specific part of an overall puzzle, a puzzle in which any small change can affect the final outcome.


Model-Driven Systems Development for Mil/Aero Industries

Designers can use model-driven system development to test and verify their complex system designs to be compatible with harsh operating environments and compliant with strict reliability requirements. You can avoid cost overruns, schedule delays, low reliability, and even product failures related to the development of large-scale systems and platforms.
