Integration of CAD and CAE technology enables engineers to explore design alternatives andto ensure product quality before the first prototypes are manufactured. It also helps to clarifyproblems that are identified in the use phase for a product. Present commercial CAD and CAEsoftware supports an associativity on component model level. Engineers are usually hinderedin their efforts to simulate the physical behavior of complex systems of components. Thispaper describes a framework and a modeling methodology, with the scope to enable numericalmodeling, simulation and analysis of the physical behavior of complex systems. Theframework, which is based on commercial CAD, CAE and PDM software, includes ametamodel, which can be characterized as ISO STEP aware but not STEP compliant. Thepresented approach is exemplified with an industrial case.
