Model Advisor Checks for DO-178C/DO-331 Industry Standards

You can use the Model Advisor to check that your model or subsystem complies with selected aspects of the DO-178C / DO-331 safety standards.

To execute these checks, open the Model Advisor and run the checks in By Task > Modeling Guidelines for DO-178C/DO-331.

Execution of these checks requires Embedded Coder®, Simulink® Check™, Simulink Design Verifier™, or Requirements Toolbox™.

For the list of Model Advisor checks that are qualified by the DO Qualification Kit for use in projects involving the DO-178 standard and related standards, see Simulink Check - Trace Matrix (mathworks_slchk_trace.xlsx). This artifact is available in the qualification project that you create for Simulink Check. For more information, see Create a Tool-Specific Qualification Project (DO Qualification Kit).


If your model uses model referencing, run qualified checks on all referenced models before running them on the top-level model.
