Product and Systems Engineering/CA* Tool Chains

  • Kristin PaetzoldEmail author


For the development of interdisciplinary technical systems such as CPS, systemic approaches which stringently summarize the logic of development are currently available. These approaches are suitable to support the complexity of both the CPS as well as the related developmental processes. However, these development methods are relatively generic. An adaptation or a tailoring to specific conditions of both the products under consideration as well as the development of boundary conditions is absolutely necessary to use them effectively and efficiently. For the development of CPS also a variety of IT tools which effectively support the product development but only if they are well coordinated with the corresponding processes, are already available. If the interfaces are described sufficiently and comprehensively, and the data characteristics of the results of the various development activities are taken into account, media discontinuities can be reduced. The major challenge in the development of complex technical systems is the overall system analysis and the system integration. To this end, modern methods such as model-based engineering in general and model-based Systems Engineering in specific, provide powerful approaches that must be applied and adjusted for the purposes of the product and process characteristics. This adjustment process to product development and the integration of MBSE approaches into the IT-structures may be seen as the main challenges for the future.
