Search for architecture element
This function is part of the instance API that you can use to analyze the model
iteratively, element by element.
instance refers to the element
instance on which the iteration is being performed.

|architecture||A System Composer™ architecture represents a system of components and how they interface with each other structurally and behaviorally. You can represent specific architectures using alternate views.|
Different types of architectures describe different aspects of systems:
|Compose Architecture Visually|
|model||A System Composer model is the file that contains architectural information, including components, ports, connectors, interfaces, and behaviors.|
Perform operations on a model:
System Composer models are stored as
|Create an Architecture Model|
|component||A component is a nontrivial, nearly-independent, and replaceable part of a system that fulfills a clear function in the context of an architecture. A component defines an architecture element, such as a function, a system, hardware, software, or other conceptual entity. A component can also be a subsystem or subfunction.||Represented as a block, a component is a part of an architecture model that can be separated into reusable artifacts.||Components|
|port||A port is a node on a component or architecture that represents a point of interaction with its environment. A port permits the flow of information to and from other components or systems.|
There are different types of ports:
|connector||Connectors are lines that provide connections between ports. Connectors describe how information flows between components or architectures.||A connector allows two components to interact without defining the nature of the interaction. Set an interface on a port to define how the components interact.||Connections|
|analysis||Analysis is a method for quantitatively evaluating an architecture for certain characteristics. Static analysis analyzes the structure of the system. Static analysis uses an analysis function and parametric values of properties captured in the system model.||Use analysis to calculate overall reliability, mass roll-up, performance, or thermal characteristics of a system, or to perform a SWaP analysis.||Analyze Architecture|
|instance||An instance is an occurrence of an architecture model at a given point of time.||You can update an instance with changes to a model, but the instance will not update with changes in active variants or model references. You can use an instance, saved in an ||Create a Model Instance for Analysis|
