This paper addresses the realization of a consistent modeling chain from requirements modeling to function modeling and eventually system modeling intended to support early system simulation. Therefor, a prototypical software support has been developed, which links existing software tools for requirements management, function modeling and system simulation and enables a consistent transition of information between them. The paper illustrates the development and initial evaluation of the prototypical software support and discusses potentials for further development and improvement.
