What Are Simulink Projects?

You can use Simulink® Projects to help you organize your work. Find all your required files; manage and share files, settings, and user-defined tasks; and interact with source control.

If your work involves any of the following:

  • More than one model file

  • More than one model developer

  • More than one model version

— then Simulink Projects can help you organize your work. You can manage all the files you need in one place — all MATLAB® and Simulink files, and any other file types you need such as data, requirements, reports, spreadsheets, tests, or generated files.

Projects can promote more efficient team work and individual productivity by helping you:

  • Find all the files that belong with your project.

  • Create standard ways to initialize and shut down a project.

  • Create, store, and easily access common operations.

  • View and label modified files for peer review workflows.

  • Share projects using built-in integration with Subversion (SVN), an external source control tool.

See the Web page http://www.mathworks.com/products/simulink/simulink-projects/ for the latest information, downloads, and videos.

To get started with managing your files in a project:

  1. Try an example project to see how the tools can help you organize your work. See Try Simulink Project Tools with the Airframe Project.

  2. Create a new project. See Create a New Project to Manage Existing Files.

  3. Analyze your project and check required files by using the Dependency Analysis view. See Choose Files and Run Dependency Analysis.

  4. Explore views of your files. See Work with Project Files.

  5. Create shortcuts to save and run frequent tasks. See Use Shortcuts to Find and Run Frequent Tasks.

  6. Run operations on batches of files. See Run a Simulink Project Batch Job.

  7. If you use a source control integration, you can use the Modified Files view to review changes, compare revisions, and commit modified files. If you want to use source control with your project, see About Source Control with Projects.

For guidelines on structuring projects, see Componentization Guidelines.
