Designing Mechatronic Systems: A Model Integration Approach
2011 (English)In: International Conference on Engineering Desgin ICED2011, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2011, 145-156 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Development of mechatronic products requires different types of design models in order to support both domain-independent specifications and domain-specific principles. This research aims to find out how system-level modeling can support mechatronic design, and how the integration of system-level modeling and domain-specific modeling can be supported during different design phases. A design example of a hospital bed’s propulsion system is presented to show firstly the relationship between conceptual design and system-level modeling, and secondly the need for integration of system level and domain specific design models. An integrated modeling and design infrastructure is proposed to support abstraction between mechatronic design models, hence supporting co-evolution of design models. The paper concludes that a mechatronic design problem can be better supported through such an integrated design approach. However, usability of this approach needs to be further supported by more case studies in the future.
