The development of cognitive technical systems is considered as a further development of mechatronic systems. Rigid sensor-actor chains are broken up while thereby becoming flexible. This is achieved by appropriate data processing, which enables a high degree of learning aptitude. Cognitive abilities have an effect on the product structure, so on the physicalness of the system. It proves to be reasonable to represent the system's functionality by input-output coherences. Behavioral modeling enables reconciliation with the functions required by the user, and can simultaneously be understood as an integrating element for the domains involved. From this derived is the postulation to supplement the digital mock-up by a functional mock-up.
