Component-based modeling enables efficient and robust system development, facilitates collaboration, and improves verification workflows. Large-scale systems typically use a combination of Simulink® model components.
For an overview of when to use different componentization techniques, see Component-Based Modeling in Simulink (4 min, 28 sec).
For help defining model components, see Component-Based Modeling Guidelines.
For an example that shows bottom-up model evolution, see Basic Modeling Workflow.
|Subsystem||Group blocks to create model hierarchy|
|Model||Reference another model to create model hierarchy|
|Variant Subsystem, Variant Model||Template subsystem containing Subsystem, Model, or Subsystem Reference blocks as variant choices|

|Referenced Files Pane||View, save, and close referenced subsystems and models|
Define Model Components
- Component-Based Modeling Guidelines
Consider componentization for large models and multiuser development teams.
Develop Model Components
- Basic Modeling Workflow
Model a simple mechanical system, then scale the model for a collaborative component-based modeling project.
- STEP 1: Model a System Algorithm
- STEP 2: Create Model Components
- STEP 3: Manage Signal Lines
- STEP 4: Manage Model Data
- STEP 5: Reuse Model Components from Files
- STEP 6: Create Interchangeable Variations of Model Components
- STEP 7: Set Up a File Management System
Interact with Model Components
- Configuration Management
Projects can help you work with configuration management tools for team collaboration.
- Preview Content of Model Components
Display representation of block contents on the face of a block.
- Navigate Model Hierarchies
Navigate model hierarchy of subsystems and referenced models.
