Variability Management is the discipline of managing multi-products for decreasing cost and time to market. Although Product Line Engineering (PLE) deals with this topic, its deployment still faces significant challenges. Until recently, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is applied for enabling re-usability, serviceability and assuring consist...

Mechatronic systems play a significant role in different types of industry, especially in transportation, aerospace, automotive and manufacturing. Although their multidisciplinary nature provides enormous functionalities, it is still one of the substantial challenges which frequently impede their design process. Notably, the conceptual design phase...
Article
One of the regular activities performed by engineers during the design and development of the technical systems is to determine which sentences in a PDF specification document represent a re-quirement, functional architecture, design solution, variability, or other types of systems engineering (SE) data. Extracting such data from these PDF document...
Article
Both Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been challenged for their deployment in real-world applications. Although MBSE remains the focal point of any systems engineering activities, its adoption still faces significant hurdles to demonstrate its return on investment. Recently, AI has received intensive atte...

Variability Management is the discipline of dealing with multi-products by decreasing engineering cost, improving quality and reducing time to market. The management of product variability and commonality is a pivotal point in the discipline of Product Line Engineering (PLE). Although, PLE is an effective solution for these concerns, its deployment...
Conference Paper

The design of a mechatronics system is considered one of the hardest challenges in industry. This is mainly due to the multidisciplinary nature of the design process that requires the knowledge integration of the participating disciplines. Previously, we have proposed SysDICE a framework that is capable of: (1) modeling the multidisciplinary inform...
Chapter
Der Entwicklungsprozess mechatronischer Produkte ist geprägt durch deren interdisziplinären Charakter und steigende Komplexität. Es gilt, diese Komplexität durch methodische Ansätze beherrschbar zu machen und, unter Berücksichtigung gegenseitiger Abhängigkeiten, die beteiligten Entwickler effizient zu koordinieren. Modellbasierte Ansätze zur Modell...

Mechatronic technologies are used in a wide range of industries, from aerospace to automotive, manufacturingand even to personal devices, such as cd/dvd players. Although their multidisciplinary natureprovides great functionalities, it is still one of the substantial challenges which frequently impede theirdesign process. Apart from this problem, a...
Conference Paper
Although the multidisciplinary nature of mechatronic systems has been an inspiration of great product’s functionalities, it is still acknowledged as one of the substantial challenges which frequently impede their design and development process. This research proposes an approach called SysDICE that abbreviates a SysML-based method for an Intelligen...
Conference Paper
Three-dimensional sensing is a vital field in mobile robotic applications. This work proposes an application of a Time-of-Flight 3D Photonic Mixer Device (PMD) camera for the navigation of an Omni-directional mobile robot. The 3D PMD camera enables real time distance detection as well as the capturing of grayscale images. In our framework, the appl...
Conference Paper
Today mechatronic design usually suffers from a lack of domain-spanning IT-support. Commonly, each discipline is using its specific IT-tools and data formats and the abundance of logical connections between the disciplines is only present in the designer’s minds or in unstructured documents such as MS Word or MS PowerPoint files. Many approaches to...

Question
Several Model-Based Systems Engineering methodologies already exist. Particularly for SysML, e.g., IBM Harmony, INCOSE OOSEM, SYSMOD and other industrial specific.
Do you know any techniques/standards/approaches that support in defining other modeling methods, i.e., define its building blocks, scope and purpose, guidelines, modeling rules, etc...?
