Model-based design helps engineers address the increasing complexity in developing high-integrity software for medical devices, such as dialysis machines. With model-based design, you can simulate closed-loop and supervisory control logic, develop multi-domain physical models of the system, generate embedded code for software implementation, and eliminate design issues early with validation and verification.

In this webinar, we will walk you through a model that implements a control system for ultrafiltration in hemodialysis that can be completely tested and verified within the simulation environment, with full traceability across areas including requirements, architecture, design, tests and code.


Join us to see these capabilities in action:

  • MBSE (Model-Based Systems Engineering) implementation of hemodialysis ultrafiltration system
  • Modelling and simulation of the dialysis process, including supervisory control logic and physical model of the dialyzer
  • Full requirements traceability from system-level architecture to embedded code
  • Automated verification and validation of the system model
  • IEC 62304 -compliant embedded code generation for production

About the Presenter

Pourash Patel

Senior Application Engineer, MathWorks

Pourash is focused on model-based design workflow in the medical device industry. He supports the entire V software development workflow, but primarilyy focuses on MBSE and V&V (verification and validation). Prior to MathWorks, Pourash worked in the power tool and automotive industry where he supported controls, systems, and test organizations. He received a M.S. + M.Eng in electrical engineering from Western University, Ontario, Canada, where he specialized in embedded controls.

Yifeng Tang

Senior Application Engineer, MathWorks

Yifeng supports MathWorks tools for multi-domain physical modeling as an integrated part of the model-based design (MBD) workflow.  He specializes in the modeling and simulation of mechanical, thermal and fluid systems, such as thermal management systems, fuel cells, and hydraulic systems. Prior to joining MathWorks, he worked for Ford Motor Company in the powertrain research department. Yifeng earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan and a B.S.E. in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Tianyi Zhu

Product Marketing Manager, MathWorks

Tianyi focuses on go-to-market activities, messaging, and worldwide field support for Simulink and Model-Based Design. He holds M.S. and B.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, both from Carnegie Mellon University.
