Set Model Configuration Parameters for a Model

Model configuration parameters determine how your model runs by specifying the type of solver used, import and export settings, and other settings that control model behavior. Every model has a configuration set that contains the model configuration parameters and their specified values. When you create a new model, it contains the default configuration set, called Configuration, that specifies the default values for the model configuration parameters.

To view and set the configuration parameters for your model, open the Configuration Parameters dialog box. In the Simulink® Editor, on the Modeling tab, click Model Settings Model Settings icon..

Configuration parameters dialog box showing the data import/export pane.

Right-click a parameter name and select What's This? to see:

  • A short parameter description.

  • The parameter name that you can use in scripts.

  • Parameter dependencies.

From the What's This? dialog box, click Show more information for the complete parameter documentation.

To find a parameter by using its name, command-line name, value, or description, use the Search box at the top of the dialog box. The search tool supports regular expressions. Type . in the search box to see a list of all parameters.

Configuration Panes

The configuration set is organized in panes that contain parameters related to that category. To display the parameters for a specific category, click the associated pane in the tree on the left side of the dialog box. You can access the advanced parameters for each pane by mousing over the ellipsis toward the bottom of the dialog box and clicking Advanced parameters.

For more information about the parameters on each of the panes, see:

Some MathWorks® products that work with Simulink define additional parameters. For example, parameters related to Simulink Coder™ are located on the Model Configuration Parameters: Code Generation (Simulink Coder) pane. If such a product is installed on your system, the configuration set also contains the associated configuration parameters and panes.
