Component Selection

Choose model, subsystem, or subchart for analysis

If you have an existing model, subsystem, or subchart in Simulink®, configure portions of your design for Simulink Design Verifier™ analysis. Use the bottom-up approach, analyzing smaller components first, for best results with a large or complex model. If you are just beginning your design process, see Design Considerations.
