ID: Titlehisl_0037: Configuration Parameters > Model Referencing

Set these Configuration Parameters as follows:


Rebuild to Never or If any changes detected.


Never rebuild diagnostic to Error if rebuild required.


Clear Minimize algebraic loop occurrences.


To prevent unnecessary regeneration of the code, resulting in changing only the date of the file and slowing down the build process when using model references.


For safety-related applications, an error should alert model developers that the parent and referenced models are inconsistent.


To be compatible with the recommended setting of Single output / update function for embedded systems code.
