The engineering of mechatronic systems is a challenge due to the various domains involved. MBSE is regarded as the future paradigm of product engineering to face this challenge – not restricted to any domain or industry. The core concept is a system model which allows a holistic perspective of the system in a domain-spanning way. MBSE gained momentum within the last years. Nevertheless, numerous barriers exist that inhibit the implementation of MBSE; especially there is little attention on the socio-technical aspects of product engineering as stakeholders, their roles and responsibilities and how to organize modeling processes in projects. Application scenarios are suggested as an approach to define and analyze situations in product engineering, when the system model provides benefit. It describes e.g. ways to create or to use the system model and to collaborate and interact on them. This will help to gain more acceptance of the MBSE approach.
