Abstract

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.

Keywords: Requirements, function modeling, system simulation, model consistency

In the area of innovation, design and product development we quite often seem to know that something works in practice, but might lack understanding on the theoretical foundations. Many of the topical issues related to design, development, and innovation that seem to be regarded as “common knowledge” within the industry, are insufficiently founded from the theoretical perspective. On the other hand, results of academic research are often insufficiently disseminated to the industry. We are calling...
