The aim of this work is to support the multidisciplinary
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 simultaneous simulation.
Since Rose RealTime does not have a well-defined notion
of timed simulation, we have used the simulation time of
Simulink also for Rose RealTime. An intermediate
component has been implemented, which realizes time
synchronization and data exchange between the tools.
