This video describes two approaches for managing design data and shows how to migrate data from the base workspace to Simulink® Data Dictionaries. A centralized data management with a single dictionary containing data for all components in the model hierarchy is the simplest way to manage design data. With this approach, all data is shared and accessed by all components in one place. For more complex designs, design data can be componentized by setting up a shared dictionary for common data, and separate dictionaries for different components of the system. Data componentization establishes clear data ownership, which enables teams of engineers to independently develop different parts of the system.
