Abstract

Today, in a very competitive industrial context, different companies have difficulties to respect delays in design and manufacturing of multi-domain product. These difficulties are most of time due to the non respect of requirements defined at the beginning of the project development, during the Function Performance Specifications phase. Furthermore, an important problem during multi-domain products design and development process is the communication between experts of different domains.

To answer to this problem, the authors propose in this paper to describe and analyze this problematic through a meta-model. They focus only on mecatronic product. From the proposed meta-model analysis, they develop two possible links between both mechanical and electronic domains in a model: (1) between models and (2) between analysis tools of different domains. The application of this model to a concrete example shows that we can link all the main common data of a product design and development to the modeling and simulation tools of different domains.

Keywords: Functional Analysis, multi-domain product, multi-domain communication, mecatronic
