You can extend the existing functionality of SimEvents® by authoring new blocks to model behaviors that are not provided with a SimEvents built-in solution. To create custom functionality in SimEvents models, you can use the MATLAB Discrete-Event System block that allows you to implement a discrete-event System object written in MATLAB® language.
To implement a custom discrete-event System object, inherit
matlab.DiscreteEventSystem class. Link the System object to a SimEvents model by using a MATLAB Discrete-Event
System block. The linked MATLAB Discrete-Event
System block exhibits the desired custom behavior during
