Abstract

Scaling products by the development of type series and construction kits are established methods to meet the demands of mass customization and well understood for conventional mechanical engineering. In comparison the investigation of mechatronic systems with respect to scalability only takes place in an inadequate manner. Until now no common understanding of scaling exists between the participating domains mechanics, elctronics and software technologies. This article tries to generate a common view and shows how domain allocation can extend the limits of conventional product families.

Keywords: scalability, modular design, type series, methodology, similarity
