7 Synergy with Reactis for Simulink
Combining Reactis for C with Reactis for Simulink in a model-based
development process produces synergistic benefits.
Engineers performing model-based design using
as a design tool and C as an implementation language
can benefit significantly from using
Reactis for C in combination with its sibling product,
Reactis for Simulink.

a Stateflow/Simulink model.|
Synergistic benefits occur when test suites are shared between both
versions of Reactis. There are two basic use-case scenarios.
The first case is shown in Figure 18,
which depicts the work-flow in a typical model-based
In this scenario, the conformance of an implementation to a
model can be checked by generating
a test suite using Reactis for Simulink, and then testing
the implementation against the test suite with Reactis for C.

Figure 19 shows the work-flow when using both
Reactis products to support the reverse engineering of models from legacy C code.
In this scenario, the conformance of the model
to the legacy implementation can be checked by generating a test suite from
the implementation using Reactis for C, and then
testing the model against the test suite using Reactis for Simulink.
