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.

Get Started

Learn the basics of System Composer

Author Architecture Models

Represent system architecture using components, ports, and interfaces

Link and Manage Requirements

Associate architecture model elements with functional and non-functional requirements

Extend Architectural Elements

Add custom properties to architectural elements using stereotypes

Create Custom Views

View sections of an architecture model using components, ports, and interfaces

Allocate and Analyze Architecture Models

Use allocations to establish relationship between model elements, verify system design requirements

Author Model Behavior

Associate architecture models with functionality specified in Simulink models

Import and Export Architecture Model

Import models from third-party tools and export them with System Composer changes
