Dr. Duane Jacques
Western University, Canada

RESEARCH GOALS: Dr. Jacques is a post-doctoral fellow under the supervision of Dr. Kenneth A. McIsaac. Together, they are investigating Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) related performance measures of embedded systems development using both simulation and production code generation from a model-based framework.

METHODS:

MSC RESEARCH ASSIST AWARD: Dr. Jacques and Western University have been awarded Adams to develop performance measures for embedded systems development from a model-based framework integrating Simulink for controller design, system verification, and code generation with multibody dynamics modeling using Adams.
