Simulation Data Inspector in Your Workflow

The Simulation Data Inspector enables you to inspect and compare time series data at multiple stages of your workflow:

  • Inspect and compare simulation data while iteratively modifying the model diagram, parameter values, or configuration.

  • Compare simulation outputs for different inputs when testing your model.

  • Compare simulation outputs to generated code outputs.

This example workflow shows how the Simulation Data Inspector fits in at several points of a design cycle:

  1. Populate the Simulation Data Inspector with Your Data.

    Run a simulation in a model configured to log data to the Simulation Data Inspector, or import data from the workspace or a MAT-file.

  2. Inspect Simulation Data.

    View signals on multiple plots, zoom in and out on specified plot axes, and use data cursors to understand and evaluate the data. Create Plots Using the Simulation Data Inspector to tell your story.

  3. Compare Simulation Data

    You can compare individual signals or simulation runs and analyze your comparison results with relative, absolute, and time tolerances. The compare tools in the Simulation Data Inspector facilitate iterative design and allow you to highlight signals that do not meet you tolerance requirements. For more information about the comparison operation, see How the Simulation Data Inspector Compares Data.

  4. Save and Share Simulation Data Inspector Data and Views.

    Share your findings with others by saving Simulation Data Inspector data and views.

You can also harness the capabilities of the Simulation Data Inspector from the command line. For more information, see Inspect and Compare Data Programmatically.
