Find if instance is architecture instance
This function is part of the instance API that you can use to analyze the model
iteratively, element by element.
instance refers to the element
instance on which the iteration is being performed.
Load the small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) model, create an architecture instance, and query whether the instance is an architecture instance.
scExampleSmallUAV model = systemcomposer.loadModel('scExampleSmallUAVModel'); instance = instantiate(model.Architecture,'UAVComponent','NewInstance'); flag = isArchitecture(instance)
flag = logical 1

|analysis||Analysis is a method for quantitatively evaluating an architecture for certain characteristics. Static analysis analyzes the structure of the system. Static analysis uses an analysis function and parametric values of properties captured in the system model.||Use analyses to calculate overall reliability, mass roll-up, performance, or thermal characteristics of a system, or to perform a SWaP analysis.|
|analysis function||An analysis function is a MATLAB® function that computes values necessary to evaluate the architecture using properties of each element in the model instance.||Use an analysis function to calculate the result of an analysis.||Write Analysis Function|
|instance model||An instance model is a collection of instances.||You can update an instance model with changes to a model, but the instance
model will not update with changes in active variants or model references. You
can use an instance model, saved in an ||Run Analysis Function|
|instance||An instance is an occurrence of an architecture model element at a given point in time.||An instance freezes the active variant or model reference of the component in the instance model.||Create a Model Instance for Analysis|
|architecture||A System Composer architecture represents a system of components and how they interface with each other structurally and behaviorally. You can represent specific architectures using alternate views.|
Different types of architectures describe different aspects of systems:
|Compose Architecture Visually|
|model||A System Composer model is the file that contains architectural information, including components, ports, connectors, interfaces, and behaviors.|
Perform operations on a model:
System Composer models are stored as SLX files.
|Create an Architecture Model with Interfaces and Requirement Links|
|component||A component is a nontrivial, nearly independent, and replaceable part of a system that fulfills a clear function in the context of an architecture. A component defines an architecture element, such as a function, a system, hardware, software, or other conceptual entity. A component can also be a subsystem or subfunction.||Represented as a block, a component is a part of an architecture model that can be separated into reusable artifacts.||Components|
|port||A port is a node on a component or architecture that represents a point of interaction with its environment. A port permits the flow of information to and from other components or systems.|
There are different types of ports:
|connector||Connectors are lines that provide connections between ports. Connectors describe how information flows between components or architectures.||A connector allows two components to interact without defining the nature of the interaction. Set an interface on a port to define how the components interact.||Connections|
