Standards, Guidelines, and Block Usage

Develop models and code that comply with standards and guidelines; products and blocks that support code generation

Modeling guidelines include recommended model settings, block usage, and block parameters. Use these guidelines when you develop models and generate code for specific applications and standards. If your application has safety-critical development and certification goals, your models and generated code might have to comply with one or more industry standards and guidelines. For more information, see Support for Standards and Guidelines.
