What Are Our Model-Based Development Services?
Model-based development is a design and development method that models, simulates, and then verifies controls and controlled objects that make up systems. Through model-based development, verification can be done during the design process, which reduces rework in the verification process, thereby significantly reducing development hours and improving quality. Model-based development methods are used not only in the design process but also in the verification process. By modeling the verification environment, various types of verification can be performed.
Currently, model-based development is being used in a variety of products. It has been implemented mainly in the development of in-vehicle systems but is also being used in a wide range of other fields such as medical equipment and robotics. It is expected to be introduced in a variety of fields in the future.
The Need for Model-Based Development
MBD offers many benefits!
Actual equipment-based validation
Since actual equipment does not exist in the design phase and development of a prototype is costly, validation proceeds slowly.
A model of the “item” to be controlled is supplied
Since a model of the “item” to be controlled is supplied, validation testing through simulation on a PC is possible and it streamlines the development process.
Growing cost due to reworking
If a specification-level error is found at a later phase in development, such as during the validation of actual equipment, extensive reworking is necessary.
Validation in advance to prevent reworking
Through simulation in the early phases of development and repeated validation, defects that would be found in the later phases of development can be eliminated in advance.
Manual programming based on the specifications creates issues such as human errors and manhours.
Automation conversion from model
A model can be automatically converted to C code without manual programming. Accurate C code can be rapidly created.
Barriers to reaching an understanding between different fields
Problems such as misunderstanding tend to occur in communication between the different fields.
Simulation is intuitive
Simulation results can be visually understood. Integrated simulation including mechanics, control, and electronics can be performed.

Contact Us if You Have Any of the Following Issues:
We have completed the specifications, but we don't know how to make the model. We don't have the resources to design and validate models. It takes too much time to simulate a model. We want to reduce verification costs.
