Check usage of transitions to external states

Check ID: mathworks.jmaab.jc_0723

Guideline: jc_0723: Prohibited direct transition from external state to child state


Identifies transitions in Stateflow® Charts that end on external child states.

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 — No recommendations

  • JMAAB — a

Results and Recommended Actions

ConditionRecommended Action
One or more transitions end on external child states.Consider remodeling to avoid use of transitions ending on external child states.

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.

  • Supports exclusions of charts.

Edit-Time Checking

This check is supported by edit-time checking.
