Towards Model Synchronization in Model Driven Engineering of Mechatronic Systems

Abstract : Because of its multidisciplinary nature, the development of a mechatronic system requires a collaborative effort of a variety of design teams from different disciplines. As a consequence, a variety of modeling languages, formalisms and tools are needed during the design process. On the other hand, the communication issues and poor interdisciplinary understanding limit the exchange of information among these teams. The main consequence is a high risk of inconsistency between the different views (or models) of the same system. In this paper, we propose a model synchronization methodology to detect inconsistencies between the different models of a mechatronic system. The proposed method is composed of three phases: first, the entry models are abstracted into a common representation; second a comparison process of the abstracted models allows to identify potential inconsistencies, and finally the concretization phase acts to solve the detected inconsistencies. This approach is illustrated on a case study from the automotive industry to validate its adequacy in enhancing collaboration among design teams during the design process.
