Abstract

In the past it was often adequate to assemble an overall system from separately developed and optimized parts. However, recent developments in engineering show the need to integrate mechanical, optical, electrical, electronical and software components. This new quality of interdisciplinary collaboration requires new computer-aided, phase- and domain-spanning tools for modeling, analysis, simulation and optimization of complex design objects particularly in the early phases of product development. The article covers the first intermediate results of the ongoing research concerning a phase-overlapping design software tool for heterogeneous systems that supports the transition from the solution principle to embodiment design. Finally more general remarks, theses and questions concerning procedures, methods and tools for a domain-spanning and phase-overlapping design are presented to encourage a discussion. These thoughts base mostly on common statements and views in german literature.
