Abstract

Mechatronic products are characterized by a high level of interdisciplinary and complexity in the technical system and its belonging development processes. In consequence this leads to novel requirements for process planning and the used methods and tools. The main challenge is to deal with the high complexity and a variety of interdependencies.

Therefore a framework for integrated mechatronic process modeling and planning is presented. The focus is an effective integration of the involved disciplines mechanics, electronics and computer science into the overall development process. This leads to an improved synchronization of the single development processes and a common focus on the mechatronic system. The mechatronic development is seen as a system of interlinked cross domain processes and relations. It provides different and discipline independent views on the system in order to improve systems thinking. A Multiple-Domain-Matrix (MDM) approach is used to represent and analyze interdependencies within the product and the process. It allows for detailed analysis and deduction of implicit interconnections which can be regarded in the planning of the development process.
