pure-systems, the leader in variant management solutions, today announced its acceptance as a member of The MathWorks Connections Program. This partnership is based on the companys pure::variants Connector for Simulink® that integrates pure::variants variant management functionality with Simulink. The MathWorks Connections Program is available to third-party organizations that develop and distribute complementary, commercially available products and services based on the MATLAB® technical computing environment. Connections Program partners help MATLAB users by providing industry or application-specific technology to fill their need for a complete solution. Partner products offer solutions that are seamlessly integrated with MathWorks products and ensure ongoing compatibility in conjunction with new MATLAB releases. We are very pleased to be a part of The MathWorks Connections Program, said Dr. Danilo Beuche, CEO of pure-systems GmbH. This is an opportunity that will enable us to align ourselves with the industrys leading technical computing software developer and we look forward to engaging in the many opportunities available to us through this partnership. With our pure::variants products we offer flexible and comprehensive solutions for consistent, systematic variant management. They were developed to enhance productivity of development of software solutions, while increasing product quality as well as the re-use of requirements and solutions. he said. pure::variants Connector for Simulink permits easy integration of variant management functionality with Simulink. It enables models to be exchanged between Simulink and pure::variants and automates the generation of Simulink® model variants. Model parameters and elements are adapted depending on how the specific selected variant has been configured. Within pure::variants model elements can be connected to features through rules. Models are adapted according to these rules and the feature selection for this model variant. The process allows blocks to be removed or added, and block-parameters to be changed. Signals can also be connected to different blocks depending on the feature selection. A final model transformation produces Simulink® models matching the desired features. About The MathWorks, Inc.
