In past two years, Model-Based Design has been extensively used at Whirlpool for embedded software development to overcome various difficulties and complexities that typically arise during the design lifecycle of embedded software for closed-loop control systems. With Model-Based Design, Whirlpool can provide a single design environment so that developers can use a single model of their entire lifecycle for data analysis, model visualization, testing and validation, and ultimately, product deployment, with or without automatic code generation.
This presentation discusses how Whirlpool has deployed Model-Based Design, starting with a single platform (home appliances) and spreading across all four different platforms (cooking, dishwasher, and refrigeration), for controls algorithm development due to the numerous advantages the workflow offers. It also explains how the team has brought maturity into the testing process using different MathWorks tools. Whirlpool has deployed a model-based methodology, following these steps:
