Sensitivity Analyzer

Explore design space and determine most influential model parameters


The Sensitivity Analyzer app lets you explore the design space and determine the most influential Simulink® model parameters using design of experiments, Monte Carlo simulations, and correlation analysis.

Using this app, you can:

  • Select and sample parameters using design of experiments.

  • Specify design requirements.

  • Perform Monte Carlo simulations to evaluate the design requirement at selected parameter values.

  • Analyze and visualize model sensitivity to parameters.

You can accelerate evaluation of design requirements using parallel computing and Simulink fast restart.

Sensitivity Analyzer app

Open the Sensitivity Analyzer App

  • Simulink Toolstrip: On the Apps tab, under Control Systems, click the Sensitivity Analyzer.

  • MATLAB® command prompt: Enter ssatool('modelname').

Programmatic Use

expand all

ssatool('modelname') opens the Sensitivity Analyzer app and creates a new session. The model must be open or on the MATLAB path.

ssatool(ssasession) opens a previously saved Sensitivity Analyzer app session.
