Embedded Systems are Growing
Simulink is a leading tool for developing embedded software systems. Modern society is familiar with seeing embedded software in hundreds of devices we use on a daily basis. As we add more and more sophistication to embedded systems in these devices, understanding size becomes critical. Knowledge of software size becomes of increasing importance.
Vehicle Systems are Growing
Cars, Trucks, Buses, Trains and Heavy vehicles are growing in sophistication with rapidly increasing amounts of software. Most of that software is designed and simulated in tools such as Simulink.
Better Cost Control
Knowing the size is a great foundation for controlling costs (and schedules for delivering the software). When system design is outsourced, having a strong understanding of the size of that software can help manufacturers understand the expected cost and schedule.
Using knowledge of size, managers can assess the size, and therefore costs, of adding additional capabilities into systems.
