While today's products are increasingly developing into high-tech products in the meaning of Industrie 4.0, Internet of Things or Industrial Internet, the processes, methods and concepts for the development of such Cyber-Physical Systems or Cybertronic Systems are adapting very slowly to the new requirements. This paper introduces a holistic concept for the development of such cybertronic systems. The focus here is on the integration of two important partial results of the German research project mecPro˛, the mecPro˛ Process Framework and the mecPro˛ Architectural Framework. While the process framework designates the development process for cybertronic systems, the architectural framework defines how the system information required in the process is created, further processed and represented in a system model including its interrelations. Based on methods of Model-based Systems Engineering this concept especially helps to improve solution finding process as well as the consistency and collaboration in the early development phases.

Keywords: Cybertronic systems, Model-based engineering, Systems Engineering (SE), Early design phases, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
