Model synchronization for mechatronic systems
The development of complex mechatronic systems requires the close collaboration of different disciplines on models of the system under development. During such a model-based development, inconsistencies between the different disciplinespecific models are likely to occur, which could lead to increased development time and costs if they remain unresolved. Model transformation and synchronization are promising techniques to detect and resolve such inconsistencies. However, existing model synchronization solutions are not yet powerful enough to support such an application scenario. My goal is to extend and improve model synchronization techniques so that they allow for synchronized models with multiple views and abstraction levels, as required by this development process.
