Right, and that was the benefit that MathWorks execs played up to me as the benefits. I guess it's a matter of perspective. Thanks for clarifying, Jack.

Not at all, Beth.  While in any one of these announcements the advantages are a bit overplayed, I was trying to point out that there are certain advantage to this in that it combines the modeling and coding, eliminating some troubleshooting issues.

That's an interesting perspective that code generation is marketing hype. So you're both saying that it's not a productivity/efficiency issue and there aren't often bottlenecks to producing code?

Yes, to a certain extent it's a bit of marketing hype.  However, if your doing a complex model in Simulink and want to put it into your PAC when done, it does tend to be a good feature that you don't have to convert it.  You can simply create a block.  Additionally, when changes aer required, they can easily be implemented in modeling environment and taken directly to production.

My code is instantaneous (but the thought behind it took time). My Simulink is instantaneous (but the thought behind it took time).
