This paper will present the open and extendible architecture of the BEACON modeling and code generation system. We will explain the mapping between BEACON's graphical block-diagram “language” and the target code and show how new graphical modeling blocks and their implementational details can be defined to expand BEACON's capabilities. BEACON is a graphical computer aided control engineering environment which automatically translates block-diagrams into either simulation or real-time computer code. BEACON was developed at GE and has been in production use within the company since the first quarter of 1992
