Mechatronic system design is contemplated extensivelythrough model-based approaches. To reflect the multidomainintegration inside a mechatronic system during the designprocess, integration approaches targeting heterogeneous modelsare essential. An infrastructure supporting the design of multidomainsystems is presented. The dependencies between thedomain-specific models are managed by utilizing SysML as acommon system modeling language between those models. Amodel integration framework supports model transformationsbetween the system-model and the domain-specific models byutilizing Eclipse Modeling Framework. Structural and parametertype dependencies between different domain-models are handledto provide consistency between different views. This provides anability to traverse between different views of the system, as wellas maintaining consistency between those views. A case study on arobot system is presented to explain the integration of mechanicaldesign model in Solid Edge, and dynamic analysis model inSimulink/SimMechanics through a SysML system model, all underthe proposed design infrastructure. The approach is scalabletowards other modeling formalisms by building new relationsthrough the SysML model. This will support: co-evolution ofdomain-specific models, a better design of multi-domain systems,reduction in modeling in-consistencies, and a reduction in designtime.
