    Abstract

    Developing mechatronic products is a great challenge for many companies due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the development process. In this article the main objective is an investigation of seven aspects related to the synthesis process of developing mechatronic products. The role and effects of these aspects are illustrated by a case study. A literature study is performed regarding how well the seven aspects have been covered in the literature. It reveals that some suggestions for support can be found in terms of semi-formal modelling suggestions and proposal for procedures, but that the context of the proposed support often originates from a control engineering dominated research area. This circumstance leaves a vast amount of other types of mechatronic products with only sparse development support with the potential of being made operational.
