Design Evolution Manager

Organize and analyze alternative versions of project files

Since R2022b


The Design Evolution Manager app helps you to manage different versions of a project. Evolutions capture the state of a project at key stages in your design process. Evolutions are organized within an evolution tree hierarchy. The relationships between evolutions and the metadata you associate with different components of an evolution tree help you model your design process, test alternative solutions, and understand the rationale of certain design decisions.


The Design Evolution Manager app is available on MATLAB® Online™ only and requires a Simulink® license.
