  • Scalable from small local to globally distributed teams

 

 

Description

Application Areas
SYNECT is a data management and collaboration software tool with a special focus on model-based development and ECU testing. The software is designed to help you manage data throughout the entire development process. This data can include models, signals, parameters, tests, test results, and more. SYNECT 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, and application/product lifecycle management systems (ALM/PLM) 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 through 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 escalating 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 open structure.
  • Benefit from SYNECT´s open architecture to implement company-wide processes via connections to ALM/PLM tools.

Test Management

SYNECT Test Management

  • Manage MIL/SIL/PIL/HIL tests and test data
  • Off-the-shelf integration with AutomationDesk® and BTC EmbeddedTester®
  • Connection to MATLAB® and Python
  • Monitore, analyze and visualize test results
  • Interface to requirements management
  • Test case parameterization
  • Integrated variant support
SYNECT Test Management supports the intuitive management, planning, monitoring and evaluation of all test activities in ECU development projects. The software provides 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 to 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 variant models
  • Manage variant configurations
  • Define relationships between variants and development data

SYNECT Variant Management lets you create variant models, 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, SYNECT Signal & Parameter Management or SYNECT Model 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, ECU software and also 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

SYNECT Model Management
  • Manage models together with their interfaces, parameters and related files
  • For distributed development and for sharing and reusing models
  • For controller models and simulation models from various modeling environments
  • Supports Simulink® models, TargetLink models and FMUs
  • Provides open interfaces to support further modeling environments
  • Comprehensive model categorization through customizable metadata
SYNECT Model Management lets you manage your prime asset in a model-based development process – your models. It combines model file management, model metadata management and model interface management1) – all in one tool, all accessable from one GUI. You can organize your models in libraries with dedicated user and rights permissions and according to their variant dependencies. The modeling of hierarchical dependencies between models and submodels allows building and configuring model compositions from different libraries or work projects. Defining and inspecting the model architecture directly in SYNECT not only increases the transparency of the models directly in the data management solution, it also supports implementing top-down development processes for new models.
