The general aim of this work is to support the multi-disciplinary development of real-time embedded systems
by combining tools of different disciplines.
As a concrete example, we have coupled a UML-based CASE tool (Rose RealTime) and Simulink to allow
Main conceptual problem is to establish a common notion of time.
We have implemented a first prototype in which this has been solved by using the simulation time
of Matlab/Simulink also for Rose RealTime and by extending the UML model with
assumptions about execution times
