"SIMULINK is very good"

What do you like best?

I have used this program and the utility is very good simulations in the control processes that we carry out in the electronic and electrical equipment production industry. Its graphs allow us to see the low and high in the output processes and to make the best decisions, already been able to meet our expectations with the size of the desired requirements, our engineers are very satisfied with it. and have Convert this tool into your right hand.

What do you dislike?

Actually I do not have any negative point in the time of use with this system, the results seem very good, the only thing I could recommend is to try to reduce the cost of the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend to my fellow engineers that they should use this tool since the simulations and control are very efficient and can perform a large number of variables. the program has been developing for a long time and because of this they have added software that complements it, this makes it better than other programs that are in the market, this makes my results in real time the most satisfactory.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the company, problems with complex equations were solved with great effectiveness and, to be interlaced with matlab, their performance is better seen allowing to see the inter relationships of variables in the control loops and if there are other tools that improve their performance and debug any final result in the processes we are doing.

"A specialized software for the simulation of control systems"

What do you like best?

It seems an incredible tool, very useful to perform the simulation of control system for multiple areas such as industrial control, which also allows me to graphically order the blocks that I will use in the control loop, being able to appreciate this graphically is very useful because Many programs only allow to express it through equations. It also has a large number of blocks and elements to use and oscilloscopes to be able to appreciate graphically the response of the output depending on the input.

What do you dislike?

In a way I do not like that when you have to simulate very complex control loops the program takes a long time to run the simulation, possibly due to computer power failures and the software is not fully optimized

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this program to all my engineering colleagues who need to test and simulate simple and complex control loops, because this program allows them to test a large number of variations of control loops. In addition, that this tool is linked to MatLab, and allows to use variables and constants previously declared in the MatLab environment. It is also an environment that takes a long time in development and has a large number of tools that other software do not have, in addition to the possibility of integrating certain functions with real-world variable meters, and performing real-time calculations

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been a very useful and interesting software for the company, because it allows us to simulate the equations of control systems that have already been previously calculated in programs like MatLab. In addition, that of being simple to use and has a large amount of documentation of many of its functions

"A must have tool for researchers"

What do you like best?

I use MATBLAB Simulink all the days in my work as a research assistant. It is a tool that I could use for develop different scenarios and research areas. In my case, I use the software to develop Hardware-in-the-Loop applications that could be easly deployed in a dSPACE device. Using it, Simulink makes very easy my developments and I can focus my work in add value to my research projects. It is very easy to develop using modules and connections between them.

What do you dislike?

One of the thing that I think the product could improve is the compatibility between the different versions of MATLAB. When I upgrade the application and want to do some test with old programms, come times the development modules doesn't work with the same results.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Is a very great tool for research, but the user have to look for the best fit tool depending of the research area or specific application, because using MATLAB in some cases is a little bit expensive or too heavy to run simple applications.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simulink makes easy the development of my research applications.

"It is a perfect software for the simulation of control systems in engineering"

What do you like best?

I like the incredible capabilities that this software has for the simulation of industrial control systems, the ability to find the compensation points in arrears or advance graphically as the case may be. In addition to having specialized tools for each analysis and approach that you want to give to a situation. I also find it quite simple to use in conjunction with Matlab, and to be able to share variables between both tools.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that the licenses of this software are so expensive, since small companies can not pay for their use. In addition, there is a lot of piracy of this software and it makes those who really have a license to hesitate if this license is really necessary. Sometimes the software needs great resources of the computer to do tasks and simple simulations

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can recommend this software, because it is a simple and powerful software to solve complex simulations, although great simulations require large computer resources. It is also easy to use and there is a very large community that helps to solve doubts at any time

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has solved great problems in the company, because it helps us calibrate the control systems of our clients allowing us to provide better services with a visual and intuitive interface

"Review for Simulink"

What do you like best?

Simulink is the perfect tool for control system design. It is very intuitive and easy to use. The user interface is very user friendly. It is easy to model the dynamics of any system, tune control algorithms and quickly analyze the stability and performance of the designed systems. Root loci and Nyquist plots are generated automatically and they're very easy to manipulate.

What do you dislike?

The computations can be pretty slow. If you have long simulations to run, this might not be the best tool to use. There is no easy way to debug your system/code when you encounter a problem, it is hard to introduce breaking points. You also need to buy quite a few toolboxes (controls/aerospace on my end) to get the full experience and it can get pretty expensive very quickly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am designing control systems for the aerospace industry. Simulink allows me to design, analyze the performance and test my algorithms and systems. It is a good way to start on control system designs and get good results and performance quickly.

"Simulink the Protector"

What do you like best?

I like this software because this software helps me to simulate any engineering related things.

What do you dislike?

As I am an engineering I have no dislikes about this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As this software is very wast and all the features are not used by our company I would as that the price is comparably very very high and the use is somewhat less. Otherwise the software is Best. Thank you

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an Electrical Enigneer and I am working in the De thok company. Our company has many meets with this software as this software simulates and tells about the working condition of any model we make. I think this software will touch many heights of success as I know uptill now I have seen the only software which simulates. As the software which is very very expensive approximately 15 lakhs. But it is very compatible and frequently used by our company. This software is used by our company to simulate the circuits, as the circuits in real life are very hard to implement as it can have a blast or explosion. So like this it helps us to scope the waves and to multiplex all the equipments and helps us to simulate that the PCB or our products will be easy and compatible to use for the longer and better use. Mainly the Power electronics parts are the best as our company uses that part frequently as the PCBs are direct in connection with the PCBs. So from my side this software is very good and easy to use.

"Very good for fiber optics calculations"

What do you like best?

They way it gives the exact values for different lengths of fibers when connected to different types of modulation.

What do you dislike?

It need certain basics to be cleared before using it. Once the basic tools are known it is pretty much easy to design the whole optisystem.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The only problem is that it takes a lot of time to start up if you are using the lower version of Windows such as windows 7 or XP or VISTA. if you are using the higher end of Windows it opens up pretty quickly. For students using this software to design their optisystem it gives a perfect value for the output which helps them in their project.

"Incredible Dynamic System Analysis Tool"

What do you like best?

The interface is simple to use and very approachable. Having the ability to simulate a dynamic system such as a DC motor or a suspension system has been incredibly helpful in my coursework, extracurricular activities, projects, and in my professional work.

What do you dislike?

The price point is very steep for many companies to take advantage of Simulink.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not a very steep learning curve, but requires a large amount of engineering knowledge to use effectively. Not very useful unless the user wants to analyze dynamic systems. This would be the only use that I can see Simulink being used for.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simulink allows engineers to simulate different inputs to a control system or a dynamic system. Engineers can create models to simulate physical systems, giving them the ability to do experiments and tune systems without spending the money to build physical tests. After building the model, performance in a physical test can be compared to that of the simulation, giving engineers the power to save large amounts of money.
