The Auto-Generation of Calibration Guides from MATLAB® Simulink® 2019-01-1332

With the inception of Model Based Development and Auto-Code generation, many organizations are developing controls & diagnostics algorithms in Simulink® to meet customer & regulatory requirements. Advances in Model Based Development in Simulink® have made it easier to auto-code models to C code and helped software engineers to streamline their workflow. Typically after the software has been developed in Simulink®, the models are handed over to the Calibration team who would be responsible for calibrating the features to meet the desired customer & regulatory requirements. However, once the models are handed over to the calibration team, the calibration engineers are unaware of how to calibrate the features because documentation is not available. Typically documentation for the model trailed behind the software process as this was considered a manual task where a lot of time was spent on document formatting. This process was very cumbersome and lack of documentation or up-to date documentation has caused a lot of pain for OEM's and Tier 1 Suppliers. This paper will explore the auto-generation of documentation from Simulink® models and how to incorporate documentation in the model as part of the build configuration software process. The format & contents of the auto-generated document will be reviewed in this paper. This paper will also describe the use of MATLAB® and Simulink® Report Generator API's (Application Program Interface) to extract relevant information from the models to display in the document. Theory will be put in practice to show that documentation can be built in the software workflow to help reduce turnaround time of software & documentation.
