Two common goals for creating reports are:
System design documentation — Capture information about the design decisions, structure, implementation, and operational details of a system.
Results reporting — Present results of running a system.
You use a similar workflow for creating and generating reports for both goals. However, some components are particularly useful for each use case.
System documentation helps you to:
Capture design decisions
Record implementation details
Communicate the system design and interfaces among groups
When you create a Simulink® Report Generator™ report to provide system design documentation, the report captures information about the system design from the model. Each time that you generate the report, you see up-to-date documentation for the design.
The table includes examples of components that are useful for system design documentation reports.

Capturing results from simulating a model is useful for:
Model regression testing
Verifying and validating designs
Exploring design alternatives

You can use components such as the
Model Simulation component
to control how the model simulates. Other components, such as the
Snapshot, show the results of the simulation.
