Synergies and integration in design set a mechatronic system apart from a traditional, multi-disciplinary system. On the other hand, the increased complexity of mechatronic systems, resulting from the benificial interaction of components from various domains, requests the use of an appropriate design methodology in order to recognize the functionality and performance of a solution already at an early stage of the mechatronic design process and to shorten development time. The mechatronic pillar model outlined in this paper deals with a systematic approach of modeling mechatronic systems by establishing an appropriate model hierarchy. This helps to keep the overview over such systems and to make the interactions, interdependencies and interfaces more transparent.
