Coefficient Diagram Method (CDM) is a new method proposed for the analysis and design of linear time-invariant control systems. The control system design by this method results with satisfactory stability, time response and robustness properties compatible with, and in most cases better than, the ones obtained by the other present design methods. In this study, the design procedure described in the literature for CDM is improved so that a systematic and easy tool with understandable sufficient detail is presented. A visual toolbox, which can be used efficiently both for education and research, is obtained based on the procedure presented by using MATLAB. (C) 2004 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
