The design of mechatronic products requires cooperation and coordination of the involved disciplines. To analyze the dynamic behavior of the product’s subsystems and their components, multiple dynamic behavior models (DBM) are developed in different levels of detail (modeling depths) and domains. However, in order to simulate the complex interactions and dependencies between them, models of the whole system are needed, which fit the varying modeling objectives and analysis goals. These comprehensive models are often extensive and the manual construction presupposes deep insight in the specific model approaches and modeling tools. Furthermore, consistency needs to be ensured. The paper describes a way to automatically configure simulation models of the system adopting a Software Product Line (SPL) approach. With the use of feature models, SPL approach provides a structured method for managing variability. The particular focus of this paper is on handling of components in different tools with more than one level of detail through deployment of feature modeling. Also, it presents the concept of a multifunctional model client (MMC), which facilitates integration of solution and system knowledge.
