Rule

Sub ID a

For the If block, the if expression and elseif expression shall be used only to define input signals.

Custom Parameter

Not Applicable

Example — Correct

The if expression only defines the input variables.

Example — Incorrect

The if expression defines a comparison operation.

Rationale

Sub ID a:

  • Visual comprehension of control conditions is easier when logical operations are described outside of the If block.

  • Describing logical operations outside of the If block allows verification to focus on the logical operation.

Verification

Model Advisor check: Check logical expressions in If blocks (Simulink Check)
