Use Sensitivity Analysis to evaluate how the parameters and states of a Simulink® model influence the model output or model design requirements. You can evaluate your model in the Sensitivity Analysis tool, or at the command line. You can speed up the evaluation using parallel computing or fast restart. In the Sensitivity Analysis tool, after performing sensitivity analysis, you can export the analysis results to the Parameter Estimation or Response Optimization tools. To learn more about sensitivity analysis and its applications, see What is Sensitivity Analysis?
