Model-based Development: Beginner’s Approach


  • Includes numerous practical examples and troubleshooting hints on using Simulink
  • An extensive development guide on MATLAB, Simulink, and Stateflow principles.
  • Effective instructions for passing MATLAB modeling interviews and examinations


MATLAB and Simulink In-Depth' is a thorough introduction to MATLAB, Simulink, and Stateflow principles. It establishes a solid foundation for methodologies commonly employed in model-based development. The book demonstrates how readers can perform algorithm construction and assessment faster than ever. The book covers most contemporary issues with real-world examples.

The book begins with MATLAB experience by configuring the system environment. Then, it will help readers to get acquainted with MATLAB's history and key features. The book helps in getting familiar with the desktop user interface and fundamental instructions of MATLAB, as well as data visualization. It helps to investigate Simulink's core features, configuration settings, and libraries. It explains the step-by-step process to design and simulate a basic Simulink model. It also helps to investigate advanced modeling techniques, including custom libraries, model referencing, and subsystems. In addition, the book explains the construction of test environments and model simulation. It explores Stateflow topics such as flow graphs, hierarchical models, conditions, actions, and transitions.


  • Work with MATLAB syntax, commands, functions, and libraries and with the user interface and visualization.
  • Create fundamental models, configure model parameters, and utilize libraries.
  • Perform model referencing, simulation, visualization and debugging with Simulink.
  • Familiarize yourself with Stateflow, flow graph, Statechart, truth table, including states, actions, transitions and junctions.
  • Implement the hierarchical state model, perform event-based execution, parsing, and debugging operations.


This book has been prepared keeping in mind the needs of students, teachers, researchers, professionals as well as technology enthusiasts. This book has been written primarily for beginners to help them realize the essential principles and capabilities of MATLAB, Simulink, and Stateflow. After reading this book, the reader will have a solid foundation of Model-based design and Simulation. Having basic programming skills will make the learning process more efficient and fun.
