In this paper an initial approach is presented that supports the exchange of assembly-related information between design and assembly planning even before the geometry of the individual parts will be developed. For this purpose the concept of Product Assembly Information (PAI), as a method for an early time estimation, is transferred to the logical level of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). To demonstrate the proposed method the paper focuses on expanding existing modeling constructs by relevant behavior elements capturing assembly relevant information.
