Abstract

To fulfil the demands of modern product development processes, nowadays engineers have to interact
with the domains of mechanical, electrical and software engineering. Due to this, their day-to-day
business in practice is strongly characterized by working with different departments and stakeholders
out of different disciplines. For improving their communication and to build up a common
understanding, an interdisciplinary model language is needed. The Systems Modelling Language
(SysML) is a language for modelling these interdisciplinary technical aspects of a system. This paper
introduces the revise of an educational teaching approach for SysML presented in 2014 [1]. It is called
SysKIT 2.0. First findings on the learning experience and the modelling results will be presented in
this paper. The current approach was taught for the first time in a multidisciplinary course, where the
students have lectures, exercises and a development project. In their development project the students
have to use SysML for modelling – concepts, prototypes, validation and optimization. This paper
presents the revised concept of SysKIT. The modifications compared to the first published concept are
pointed out and explained.
Further the paper analyzes the modelling techniques of different students groups and summarizes
statements about the benefits. These findings were made by interviewing and observing the SysMLtrained
teams using SysML during the development project

Keywords: Mechatronics, SysML teaching approach, systems engineering, modelling method, project based learning.
