Mechatronic System Design involves close examination and further development of design methods, design processes, models and tools. The current trend in mechatronics involves networked mechatronic systems, or cyber physical systems (CPS), which can also be considered as a sub-part of Systems of Systems (SoS). Therefore data models for the description of the product lifecycle of SoS are necessary on the base of existing meta-models for single (mechatronic) systems. The paper shows a meta-model of PLM for the design of SoS and discusses the influence of the IT-architecture in supporting the PLM interoperability.
