Check usage of parallel states

Check ID: mathworks.jmaab.jc_0721

Guideline: jc_0721: Usage of parallel states


Parallel states must not be used for the purpose of grouping that is the substates of parallel states must not be parallel states.

This check requires a Simulink® Check™ and Stateflow® 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
Parallel states are only for grouping.Substates of the parallel states must not be parallel (do not use for grouping).

Capabilities and Limitations

  • Runs on library models.

  • Analyzes content of library-linked blocks. By default, the input parameter Follow links is set to on.

  • Analyzes content in masked subsystems. By default, the input parameter Look under masks is set to graphical.

  • Allows exclusions of blocks and charts.

Edit-Time Checking

This check is supported by edit-time checking.
