The development of technical systems is faced with an increasing complexity. A reason for this is the growing number of domains working together for a final product. Thereby the system integration is getting more important for companies while the development of single components is often outsourced to other companies. This leads to the need of detailed interfaces descriptions between these components to support the product development process and the data and information flows. In this paper the initial steps to automatically generated behavioural simulation models are presented. The fundament for the generation of these models is model-based system engineering (MBSE). The available diagrams of MBSE are used to generate the main structure of a behaviour model. In addition partial models have been developed describing the behaviour of machine elements. Combining the MBSE models with the partial behaviour models allows the generation of a behaviour model of a complete system. A first validation of the concept of automatically generated models is presented. Based on simple MBSE and CAD models of a gear unit, different behaviour models are generated for the use with Matlab/Simulink.
