In this research work the authors reflect some aspects of state-of-the-art innovation management and product development processes. Furthermore the paper concentrates on an analysis of the phase of conceptual design with a focus on mechatronic design and on product life cycle engineering. The conceptual design phase is an underlying process of innovation, but some steps are recurring in both stages, so one can also use particular know how from conceptual design for other phases of product development and vice versa. The presented considerations for conceptual design of mechatronic systems are not finished yet, some weak points have to be eliminated in the future.
