Modern Revision Control and Configuration Management of Simulink Models 2010-01-0940
Today virtually all leading OEMs and suppliers have adopted model-based development using Simulink as part of their processes. Although the issue of revision control and configuration management has been previously addressed, the lack of high-quality diff and merge tools has prevented the adoption of simpler, more robust practices for revision control and configuration management. In 2009, 3-way merge for Simulink models became available for the first time. This timely paper discusses how teams of differing sizes can dramatically improve how they manage their models and collaborate as a team by adopting modern methods enabled by the recent availability of 3-way merge tools for Simulink models.
