System Composer Onramp

Free, self-paced, interactive System Composer course

Since R2024a


System Composer™ Onramp is a free, self-paced, interactive course that helps you get started with System Composer.

After completing System Composer Onramp, you will be able to model, simulate, and test a high-level system design by creating simulatable architecture models using System Composer.

System Composer Onramp enables you to:

  • Build a simple architecture model using components, ports, and connectors to begin your model-based systems engineering (MBSE) design.

  • Create and apply interfaces to describe information transmitted through ports.

  • Use profiles and stereotypes to extend your architectural language and specify the properties of components in your system.

  • Link your architecture to requirements to track progress toward design verification and completion.

  • Filter architecture views to present relevant subsets of your system components.

  • Link components to models authored in Simulink® to add simulatable behaviors to your architecture model.

  • Simulate and test your architecture model to validate requirements.

System Composer Onramp uses tasks to teach concepts incrementally, using an example of a quadcopter tracking a green ball. You receive automated assessments and feedback after submitting tasks. Your progress is saved when you exit the course, so you can complete the course in multiple sessions.

System Composer Onramp describes the task, displays an interactive model, and assesses whether the model matches the requirements set by the training.

Open the System Composer Onramp

  • System Composer Start Page: On the Learn tab, click the Launch button that appears when you pause on System Composer Onramp.

  • System Composer block diagram: On the quick access toolbar, click Help > Learn System Composer.

  • MATLAB Command Window: Enter learning.simulink.launchOnramp('orsc').


If you do not have a System Composer license, you can take the course at Self-Paced Online Courses.
