Author Model Behavior

Associate architecture models with functionality specified in Simulink® models, Stateflow® charts, Simscape™ models, and sequence diagrams

Use sequence diagrams integrated with System Composer™ to describe system behavior as the interaction between components in a sequence of message exchanges.

You can use Simulink models with System Composer. Define component behavior by linking to a Simulink behavior model or adding a Simulink subsystem component. Add state machine behavior in Stateflow to components. Add physical system behavior in Simscape to components.

Export Simulink behavior models into architecture models for analysis.
