Increasing integration of electrics/electronics (E/E) systems and software into modern products has led to a significant change in value creation and development of formerly mechanically oriented industries. With rising share of information technology in previously mechanics-based products both product functionalities and customer benefit increase,...

... this purpose, indicating parameters have to be introduced, which are able of characterize product maturity in view of the development processes in all involved domains. Figure 1 shows a typical development process according to the so-called V-model, applied on automotive mechatronics systems, [1]. The V-model represents a special case of waterfall models that describe sequential steps of product development, [4]. ...

The paper presents the issue of metamodeling of Domain-Specific Languages (DSL) for the purpose of designing complex mechatronics systems. Usually, one of the problems during the development of such projects is an interdisciplinary character of the team that is involved in this endeavour. The success of a complex machine project (e.g. Computer Numerically Controlled machine (CNC), loading crane, forestry crane) often depends on a proper communication between team members. The domain-specific modelling languages developed using one of the two approaches discussed in the work, lead to a machine design that can be carried out much more efficiently than with conventional approaches. Within the paper, the Meta-Object Facility (MOF) approach to metamodeling is presented; it is much more prevalent in modern modelling software tools than Graph-Object-Property-Relationship-Role (GOPRR). The main outcome of this work is the first presentation of researchML modelling language that is the result of more than twenty ambitious research and development projects. It is effectively used within new enterprises and leads to improved traceability of the project goals. It enables for fully-featured automatic code generation which is one of the main pillars of the agile management within mechatronic system design projects.
