weight property from a component with
sysComponent stereotype applied.
Create a model with a component called

Create a profile with a stereotype with a property, then apply the profile to the model.
profile = systemcomposer.profile.Profile.createProfile("sysProfile"); base = profile.addStereotype("sysComponent"); base.addProperty("weight",Type="double",DefaultValue="10",Units="g"); model.applyProfile("sysProfile");
Apply the stereotype to the component, and set a new weight property.
Get the weight property with units.

A System Composer™ architecture represents a system of components and how they interface with each other structurally and behaviorally.
Different types of architectures describe different aspects of systems. You can use views to visualize a subset of components in an architecture. You can define parameters on the architecture level using the Parameter Editor.
A System Composer model is the file that contains architectural information, including components, ports, connectors, interfaces, and behaviors.
Perform operations on a model:
A System Composer model is stored as an SLX file.
|Create Architecture Model with Interfaces and Requirement Links|
A component is a nontrivial, nearly independent, and replaceable part of a system that fulfills a clear function in the context of an architecture. A component defines an architectural element, such as a function, a system, hardware, software, or other conceptual entity. A component can also be a subsystem or subfunction.
Represented as a block, a component is a part of an architecture model that can be separated into reusable artifacts. Transfer information between components with:
A port is a node on a component or architecture that represents a point of interaction with its environment. A port permits the flow of information to and from other components or systems.
There are different types of ports:
Connectors are lines that provide connections between ports. Connectors describe how information flows between components or architectures.
A connector allows two components to interact without defining the nature of the interaction. Set an interface on a port to define how the components interact.
A stereotype is a custom extension of the modeling language. Stereotypes provide a mechanism to extend the architecture language elements by adding domain-specific metadata.
Apply stereotypes to model elements such as root-level architecture, component architecture, connectors, ports, data interfaces, value types, functions, requirements, and links. Functions only apply to software architectures. You must have a Requirements Toolbox™ license to apply stereotypes to requirements and links. A model element can have multiple stereotypes. Stereotypes provide model elements with a common set of property fields, such as mass, cost, and power.
|Extend Architectural Design Using Stereotypes|
A property is a field in a stereotype. You can specify property values for each element to which the stereotype is applied.
Use properties to store quantitative characteristics, such as weight or speed, that are associated with a model element. Properties can also be descriptive or represent a status. You can view and edit the properties of each element in the architecture model using the Property Inspector.
A profile is a package of stereotypes that you can use to create a self-consistent domain of element types.
Author profiles and apply profiles to a model using the Profile Editor. You can store stereotypes for a project in one or several profiles. When you save profiles, they are stored in XML files.
A physical subsystem is a Simulink® subsystem with Simscape™ connections.
A physical subsystem with Simscape connections uses a physical network approach suited for simulating systems with real physical components and represents a mathematical model.
|Implement Component Behavior Using Simscape|
A physical port represents a Simscape physical modeling connector port called a Connection Port (Simscape).
Use physical ports to connect components in an architecture model or to enable physical systems in a Simulink subsystem.
|Define Physical Ports on Component|
A physical connector can represent a nondirectional conserving connection of a specific physical domain. Connectors can also represent physical signals.
Use physical connectors to connect physical components that represent features of a system to simulate mathematically.
|Architecture Model with Simscape Behavior for a DC Motor|
A physical interface defines the kind of
information that flows through a physical port. The same interface can be assigned to multiple
ports. A physical interface is a composite interface equivalent to a
Use a physical interface to bundle physical elements to describe a physical model using at least one physical domain.

A physical element describes the
decomposition of a physical interface. A physical element is equivalent to a
