Today more products are developed in the form of modular productfamilies with similar, but slightly different product variants. To improve the development process but also the use and lifespanning service of product families and individual products the usage of MBSE has been an uprising trend. Using system models implicate another benefit: The stored information can be accessed by applications and be used to improve the userinteraction. One example are product configurators allowing the user to create a product variant according to individual requirements.
This link to the product family’s information can also be used in later lifecycle phases, as it enables an ongoing information flow about existing products into a digital representation, preparing the development and use of digital twins.
