Try an example Simulink® project to see how the tools can help you organize your work.
Automobiles use electronics for control operations such as:
Organize your model into independently functional parts
You can use Simulink Projects to help you organize your work.
Partition a design when it becomes too complex for one person to know all of the details.
Defining the "interface" of a software component, such as a C or MATLAB® code function or a Simulink subsystem, is a key first step before others can use it, for these reasons: When you need to change an interface, doing so is much easier if the components are stored under configuration management.
Simulink projects can help you work with configuration management tools for team collaboration.
