The MATLAB environment is designed for interactive or automated computation. Using the built-in math and graphics functions and easy-to-use tools, you can analyze and visualize your data on the fly. The structured language and programming tools let you save the results of your interactive explorations and develop your own algorithms and applications.

Users working on a broad range of applications with various levels of complexity have found MATLAB to be an effective and flexible environment that grows with them. Through the MATLAB desktop interface, you can customize MATLAB to match your working style and selectively use the features you need for each phase of your project.

By using IDENT it is possible to identify input-output, or transfer function models for dynamic systems. A rich class of models can be considered, and examples are Box-Jenkins models, ARMAX models, FIR models.
