Simulate Harness Model with Signal Editor Inputs Block

This example shows how to generate model coverage report by simulating the test harness model with the Signal Editor Inputs block. You can simulate a single test case or counterexample by selecting the active scenario in the Signal Editor dialog box. For more information see, Simulate Harness Model by Using the Signal Editor Inputs Block.

To simulate all the test cases and measure their combined model coverage, use the cvsim or the parsim command.

In this example, you generate a harness model by selecting the Signal Editor as the harness source. The Signal Editor scenarios consists of signal sources that are associated with the test cases or counterexamples. Then, to generate combined model coverage report, you simulate all the scenarios by using the cvsim or parsim function.

1. Open the model and configure harness options

Create a harness model for the sldvdemo_cruise_control model by using the sldvharnessopts options. Set the HarnessSource option to Signal Editor.

model = 'sldvdemo_cruise_control';
opts = sldvoptions;
opts.Mode = 'TestGeneration';
opts.SaveHarnessModel = 'on';
opts.HarnessSource = 'Signal Editor';
opts.HarnessModelFileName = 'sldvdemo_cruise_control_harness';
opts.SaveReport = 'off';

2. Generate test cases

Analyze the model by using the sldvrun function and sldvoptions.

sldvrun('sldvdemo_cruise_control', opts);

3. Generate combined model coverage report

Simulink Design Verifier automatically configures Signal Editor harness in multiple simulation mode. To simulate the generated test cases and gather coverage for Test Unit, click Run all (Coverage) button on Simulation toolstrip menu.

Alternatively, after the analysis generates the harness model, you can use this code that uses cvtest and cvsim functions to generate the combined model coverage report.

signalEditorBlock = 'sldvdemo_cruise_control_harness/Inputs';
numOfScenarios = str2double(get_param(signalEditorBlock,'NumberOfScenarios'));
harnessModel = 'sldvdemo_cruise_control_harness';
test = cvtest(harnessModel);
test.modelRefSettings.enable = 'On';
test.modelRefSettings.excludeTopModel = 1;
covData = [];
for id = 1:numOfScenarios
aCovData = cvsim(harnessModel);
if isempty(covData)
covData = aCovData;
covData = covData + aCovData;

Optionally, you can use this code that uses the parsim function to generate the combined model coverage report.

signalEditorBlock = 'sldvdemo_cruise_control_harness/Inputs';
numOfScenarios = str2double(get_param(signalEditorBlock,'NumberOfScenarios'));
harnessModel = 'sldvdemo_cruise_control_harness';

simIn  = Simulink.SimulationInput.empty(0,numOfScenarios);
for id = 1:numOfScenarios
    simIn(id) = Simulink.SimulationInput(harnessModel);
    simIn(id) = simIn(id).setBlockParameter(signalEditorBlock,'ActiveScenario', id);
    simIn(id) = simIn(id).setModelParameter('CovEnable', 'on');
    simIn(id) = simIn(id).setModelParameter('CovSaveSingleToWorkspaceVar', 'on');

simOut = parsim(simIn);
