3. Apply your models to specific problems: Even without a full-scale model of your plant, environment or algorithm, simulation allows you to test various extreme operating conditions that will allow you to derive basic parameters and feed them back to the hardware design activity. Moreover, these models can be stored for later use to solve a different design problem in your next development project.

4. Stick with the basics: For small teams, the immediate benefit of model-based design is the ability to create component and system models, use simulation to test and validate designs, and generate C code automatically for prototyping and testing. Only later should you consider adopting advanced tools and practice s, such as modelling guidelines, automated compliance checks and requirements traceability.

By following these simple steps, the small engineering team can quickly realise significant advantages enabled by model-based design, including faster time to first demonstration, faster time to market with a high quality product, and expanded capacity for developing complex systems.
