System Composer

Design and analyze system and software architectures

System Composer™ enables the definition, analysis, and specification of architectures and compositions for model-based systems engineering and software design. With System Composer, you allocate requirements while refining an architecture model that can then be designed and simulated in Simulink®. 

System Composer lets you create or import architecture models that describe a system in terms of components and interfaces. You can also populate an architecture model from the architectural elements of Simulink designs or C/C++ code. You can create custom live views of the model to study specific design or analysis concerns. With these architecture models you can analyze requirements, capture properties via stereotyping, perform trade studies, and produce specifications and ICDs.
