  • Agile Model-Based Development

    Published: dSPACE Magazine 2/2017, Dec 2017

    Agile development and test methods make it possible to arrive at deployable software more quickly and to improve it continuously. Transparency and consistency when exchanging data between development teams in different locations is as important as the automation of repetitive processes. Central data management as well as a concerted tool chain prove to be decisively beneficial in this process.

  • Recorded Webinar: How to Get to Requirements-Based Testing

    This webinar shows you how to perform requirements-based testing for all development and testing phases, from software unit to system level tests, from manual to automated testing.

Application Areas

SYNECT 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. As a result, SYNECT ensures consistent data versions and full traceability. At the same time, users in different locations are efficiently connected. One key aspect of SYNECT is its direct connection to engineering tools, such as 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.

Key Benefits

SYNECT integrates all your development data into one single environment.
  • Keep an overview by centrally managing, directly connecting, and comprehensively using all development data.
  • 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 the built-in SYNECT Variant Management.
  • Use the high level of automation in all steps of the process.
  • Customize SYNECT according 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.
