  • Open API for integration in existing IT infrastructure and workflows
  • Scalable from small local to globally distributed teams

Description

Application Areas
SYNECT is data management and collaboration software with a special focus on model-based development and ECU testing. Designed to help you manage data throughout the entire development process – models, signals, parameters, tests, test results, and so on – it also handles data dependencies, versions and variants, as well as links to the underlying requirements. One key aspect of SYNECT is direct connection to engineering tools, e.g., MATLAB®, Simulink®, TargetLink®, or AutomationDesk® , so that you can work with your preferred tools and seamlessly exchange data. SYNECT is ideal for automotives, aerospace, industrial automation and medical engineering – and wherever embedded systems are developed by model-based design.

 
Key Benefits
SYNECT integrates all your development data into one single environment. 
  • Directly store and reuse the data objects found in your model-based development and ECU testing process.
  • Work with your preferred tools in every development phase and benefit from easy data flow, because SYNECT integrates with engineering tools and standards commonly used in model-based development.
  • Stay on top of the exploding number of variants with SYNECT’s built-in variant management.
  • Benefit from fast deployment due to the modular and scalable product architecture.
  • Customize SYNECT to your needs and integrate it into your IT architecture thanks to SYNECT’s openness.

Test Management

SYNECT Test Management

  • Managing MIL/SIL/HIL tests and test data
  • Off-the-shelf integration with AutomationDesk® and BTC EmbeddedTester®
  • Connection to MATLAB® and Python
  • Monitoring, analyzing and visualizing test results
  • Interface to requirements management
  • Integrated variant support
SYNECT Test Management supports the intuitive management, planning, monitoring and evaluation of all test activities in ECU development projects. The software offers special support for model-in-the-loop (MIL), software-in-the-loop (SIL), processor-in-the-loop (PIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing by directly connecting test automation tools. Your whole team’s tests, test data and test results are stored centrally and made available for analysis and status monitoring independently of the test system and tool that you use.

Variant Management

SYNECT Variant Management

  • Define the variants for your project
  • Manage your variant configurations
  • Define relationships between variants and your development data

SYNECT Variant Management lets you create a variant model, specify constraints between variants, and define variant configurations that need to be supported in subsequent development phases. When working with other SYNECT modules, e.g., SYNECT Test Management or SYNECT Signal & Parameter Management, you can specify relationships between your data and variants, and manage different variants of your data.


Signal & Parameter Management

 SYNECT Signal & Parameter Management

  • Manage signals, parameters, and parameter sets
  • For controller software development and plant models
  • Interface to Simulink® and TargetLink®
  • Integrated variant support
 SYNECT Signal & Parameter Management is used for the central management of signals, parameters and parameter sets throughout the entire model-based development process. It can handle the signals and parameters of controller functions and ECU software as well as plant models. It supports commonly used file formats and standards and provides direct connections to engineering tools, so you can easily store and retrieve your signals and parameters. Data stored in SYNECT can be shared by team members and also reused in subsequent development steps and across projects.

Model Management

NEW: SYNECT Model Management
  • Manage models together with their interfaces, parameters and related files
  • Hierarchical and modular model representation to organize model reuse
  • For controller models and simulation models
  • Designed to manage models from various modeling environments
  • Interface to Simulink®
SYNECT Model Management lets you manage your prime asset in a model-based development process – your models. Model designers can manage the life cycles of their models and add useful information to the new versions they make available. This helps model integrators assess which models are suitable for specific purposes – simulation, software builds, etc. – so that they can integrate the right models with the right properties. SYNECT Model Management not only brings together model designers and model integrators, but is the central tool for everybody in an organization who works with models.
