Component Usage

SimBiology® lets you find species, parameters, and compartments that are not used in a model. You can also query how a particular quantity is used by other expressions such as a parameter being used as a reaction rate constant or species being used in an event.

From the command line, use the findUnusedComponents function to look for unused model components and the findUsages function to see how a component is used in expressions. From the SimBiology app, select Remove Unused on the Model tab to delete unused quantities. To look for usages of a quantity, select Show Usages.

A species is used when it is referenced in any of the following properties of other components:

Parameter Usage

A parameter is used when it is referenced in any of the following properties of other components:

Compartment Usage

A compartment is used when it is referenced in any of the following properties of other components:

Unit and UnitPrefix Usage

A unit or unit prefix is used when it is referenced in any of the following properties of other components:

Abstract Kinetic Law Usage

An abstract kinetic law object aklObj can only be used by a Reaction object robj. It is used when:

  • The KineticLaw property of the reaction object is not empty, and

  • robj.KineticLaw.KineticLawName matches the name of the abstract kinetic law aklObj.Name.
