Simulation has been used in product development for years. Especially in mechatronics simulation is seen as a key factor due to the high complexity of both process and product. To develop a simulation-based design process for mechatronic systems it is essential to know which tools and techniques for modeling and simulation already exist. In this paper an overview of these tools and techniques is provided as well as a rating for their use in early phases. Finally some initial ideas are presented on how to integrate simulation early in the process.
