The MathWorks and Mentor Graphics developed an integrated workflow for DO-254 compliance using Model-Based Design. The approach combines tools from The MathWorks and Mentor Graphics to support Model-Based Design throughout all stages of the development process, including requirements definition and management, conceptual and detailed design, implementation, and testing. With the integrated workflow, aerospace engineers can verify designs earlier, implement in HDL faster, gain greater reuse of design and verification effort, and more easily manage requirements and test cases throughout the entire development process.
