Abstract

The increasing penetration of mechanical engineering by information technology enables considerable benefits. This is expressed by the term mechatronics, which means the close interaction of mechanics, electric/electronics, control and software engineering to improve the behavior of a technical system. The development of such systems is complex. Consequently a domain-spanning specification is required, which describes the system in total and builds the basis for all further communication and cooperation between the experts from the involved domains in the concretization. In order to validate the system, different tests are accomplished during the concretization phase. In this contribution we present how dynamics analysis may be integrated already in the conceptual design phase. For this purpose a simulation tool is used for the validation of the dynamic behavior of the system already on the basis of the principle solution. The refinements effected during the simulation are transferred back into the principle solution. This improves the provided information for the following domain-specific concretization.
