Model-to-Model Allocations

Establish traceable and directed relationships between architectural elements in source and target models

System Composer™ allocations allow you to establish a directed relationship from architectural elements in one model — such as components, ports, and connectors — to architectural elements in another model.

You can use allocations to establish relationships from software components to hardware components and to indicate deployment strategies. You can allocate different instances of components, ports, and connectors and use allocations to perform various analyses, for example, resource-based allocation analysis.
