Can we skip states execution in a stateflow diagram?

3 views (last 30 days)
I have a state flow diagram, is it possible to skip the execution of states if the conditions are met?
As shown in this figure, if b>=3 STATE4 is reached.
If b>=3 I execute STATE1, 2 and 3 at least for 1 time step each. But is there a way to go all the way to STATE4 without executing the previous states?
I managed to do it using several entry arrows but i think that is not convenient for large stateflows, also if I am in STATE2 I would like to reach STATE4 without executing STATE3.
Is there some kind of configuration in the stateflow that allows for states to be skipped if the conditions are met?

Super-step semantics should be what you are asking for. In effect this will skip the during of a state entered and all possible transitions availble in the same times. See the doc below for further details.
