This paper presents an application of Ramadge-Wonham supervisory control theory to a patient support system for MRI scanners. The obtained controller was implemented and tested on real hardware. A distinguishing feature of the proposed application is that the evolvability of the controller is an essential requirement. By evolvability is the ability to adapt the controller to meet modified control objectives. The experiments conducted in the course of the case-study indicate that the use of supervisory control theory improves the evolvability of the controller.
