In today’s complex world of development of functions for automating Driving Systems (ADS), methods, tools, systems and new approaches are necessary for a seamless application. Furthermore, it is important to apply new technics of simulation and visualization (Digital Twin) for the new ADS functions. To prototype and to test these functions in a physical manner is not only a costly and complex effort but also encounters legal and bureaucratic obstacles. The importance of simulation is very high. For that reason, this paper and corresponding research project will develop a consistent traceable System Engineering approach of autonomous driving functions and its environment based on Munich Agile Concept for Model-Based-Systems-Engineering (MBSE). MBSE is based on three important core pillar which is 1) Methods/Processes, 2) Language and 3) Systems. The purpose of the new developed Munich Agile Concept Approach is to handle the complexity over the entire ADS feature development from the system requirement definition process up to the test and validation of the system. The Munich Agile Concept contains six different levels which are System Requirement-, System Functional-, System Architecture-, System Validation-, System Test and the System-Usage-Level. For defining the first three-level, a graphical language called System Modelling Language (SysML) has been applied.
