Refactor Models

Identify modeling clones and patterns to transform model

Use the Model Transformer and the Clone Detector app to refactor a model to improve model componentization and readability and enable reuse.

Identify modeling patterns that qualify for transformation into Variant Source or Variant Subsystem blocks. Create a model that transforms modeling patterns into Variant Source or Variant Subsystem blocks. Using Variant Subsystem and Variant Source blocks helps in the reusability of a model for different conditional expressions called variant choices. The active model is a combination of a fixed structure and variable components that you activate depending on the variant choice that you select.

Identify data store blocks that qualify for elimination. Eliminating data store blocks improves model readability by making data dependency explicit.

Identify clones and create a model these clones replaced with links to subsystem blocks in a library. Replacing clones with links to library blocks enables component reuse.

Identify n-D Lookup Table blocks that qualify for transformation into shared Prelookup blocks and multiple Interpolation blocks. This transformation improves the simulation efficiency.

Topics

Transform Model to Variant System

Use the Model Transformer tool to transform a model into a variant system.

Improve Model Readability by Eliminating Local Data Store Blocks

Use the Model Transformer tool to make data dependency explicit in a model by replacing data store blocks with either a direct signal line, a Delay block or a Merge block.

Enable Component Reuse by Using Clone Detection

Use the Clone Detector app to replace subsystem clones with library blocks.

Improve Efficiency of Simulation by Optimizing Prelookup Operation of Lookup Table Blocks

Use the Model Transformer tool to convert multiple n-D Lookup Table blocks into shared Prelookup blocks and multiple Interpolation blocks.
