Abstract

The paper describes an approach to providing knowledge support for virtual modelling and simulation (VMS). The design methodology, based on multidisciplinary virtual modelling and subsequent simulation, is essential for contemporary engineering design, but specifically for the design of complex mechatronic machines. Additionally, current engineering design is multidisciplinary and therefore based on team work. The teams are often geographically distributed and would benefit from greater support for collaboration. Engineering design also draws heavily on previous experience and therefore it is essentially to build and maintain comprehensible and re-usable archives of previous cases. This is also true of simulation models.
