Design and Practice of a Model-Based Development Education in Hydraulic Systems

Hydraulic motor control system for MBD education

This paper proposes educational simulation environment for the model-based development (MBD) of hydraulic systems. In recent years, customer requirements for different products have become more diversified and increasingly complicated. Thus, companies must respond to such demands promptly. Many companies are beginning to adopt an MBD as a solution to this problem because such an approach can reduce the development time and cost. However, most engineers in such companies lack experience with an MBD. Therefore, establishing a training environment that can allow them to learn the MBD process experientially within a short timeframe is an effective approach. Moreover, because hydraulic systems are mainly used in construction machines, this study focuses on educational materials for hydraulic systems through an MBD educational program jointly developed between Hiroshima University and Kobelco Construction Machinery Co., Ltd.
