Model-based modular redesign with system-level guarantees
Complex mechatronic systems are often developed by multiple engineering teams, each responsible for parts (modules) of the system (re)design.
These teams face the challenge of jointly warranting the satisfaction of system-level specifications. To address this challenge, a modular approach is proposed. This allows for parallel (re)design cycles for each module, simplifying the design process and reducing overall development time. This Mikroniek article presents a model-based, modular redesign framework for mechatronic systems. The framework is illustrated on a model of an industrial wire bonder, showing possible redesigns of the wire-bonder modules while guaranteeing original system-level specifications.
