Deploy SimBiology models for standalone applications

Create standalone applications to simulate SimBiology® models on target computers that do not have MATLAB® and SimBiology installed. Create standalone apps by using or the Application Compiler app. Standalone applications run on Windows®, Linux®, and macOS. You can also design interactive web apps using the App Designer, package them using MATLAB Compiler™, and host them on MATLAB Web App Server™.


Using a SimFunction object for deployment is recommended for most use cases. However, if you need the flexibility to be able to change the simulation settings in the deployed app, use SimBiology.export.Model.
