There are several scripts in MATLAB with some user inputs (for example, x=input('Enter x: ')). The scripts cannot be executed automatically, since they require to manually define all user inputs. The only way I know to automatically execute the script with predefined inputs is by using pop-up history: I run script once, defining all inputs, and the next time I can simply highlight and launch the script with the previously defined inputs from pop-up history. The drawback of the descibed technique is that I cannot run the script with the predefined inputs from any other place (for example, I want to repeatedly run the script with predefined inputs from another script or function).
Does anybody know a solution differing from using matlab history?

Like Stephen said, use a function, that's what they're for.
Make your script a function. Any other solution is just a kludge.
A function can call other functions and/or scripts. Encapsulation will preserve your sanity so learn to use it.
