Check scope of From and Goto blocks

Check ID: mathworks.maab.na_0011

Guideline: na_0011: Scope of Goto and From blocks


Checks the scope of From and Goto blocks.

You can use global scope for controlling flow. However, From and Goto blocks must use local scope for signal flows.

This check requires a Simulink® Check™ license.

Check Parameterization

This check does not include sub-checks because the MAB modeling guideline provides only one sub ID.

For reference, the MAB guideline sub ID(s) that are recommended for use by the NA-MAAB and JMAAB modeling standards organizations are:

  • NA-MAAB — a

  • JMAAB — a

Results and Recommended Actions

ConditionRecommended Action
From and Goto blocks are not configured with local scope.
  • Make sure that the ports are connected.

  • Change the scope of the specified blocks to local.

Capabilities and Limitations

  • Does not run on library models.

  • Analyzes content of library linked blocks.

  • Analyzes content in all masked subsystems.

  • Allows exclusions of blocks and charts.
