In this paper, a general scheme is proposed for Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) systems with time delays by using closed-loop gain shaping algorithm (CGSA). The controller is designed based on the minimum phase(MP) part of these processes. For every closed loop, there is the unique variable parameter, the performance and robustness can be tuned quantitatively to satisfy the practical requirements of project. Finally, three examples in published literatures are performed to illustrate the effectiveness of proposed method. Compared with the relative references, the control performances of proposed method are superior to those of existed research, and the control scheme is with advantages of concision and efficiency.
