Overcoming Current Mechatronic Design Challenges: A Discussion
2012 (English)In: Mechatronic 2012, 2012Conference paper (Refereed)
The objective of this paper is twofold. Firstly, we discuss the shortcomings of current practices, methods and tools within mechatronic design to signify the most important challenges. In this aspect, requirements management and traceability, support for decision making, and maintaining consistency are highlighted as important challenges. Secondly, potential solutions and directions where further work is important are presented. This includes providing common language, providing means for managing dependencies, utilizing an integration infrastructure, support for informal sketching and support for optimization and decision-making. Our main aim is to trigger discussions within the mechatronic community so that a mutual understanding on the challenges and research directions could be sought, and common roadmaps for future research could be devised.
