This paper is concerned with the design process of mechatronic systems. Synergies and integration in design set a mechatronic system apart from a traditional, multi- disciplinary system. The increased complexity of mechatronic systems, resulting from the beneficial interaction of components from various domains, requests the use of an appropriate design methodology. Computer integration and transparency of the product model data play an increasing role during the whole product life cycle including the process of product development. Coupling of modeling and simulation tools from the different areas of mechatronics in a so called "Mechatronical CAD"- system is one of the important points to decrease the time of product development.
