Functionality, durability, and convenience of drive systems

The inadequate fulfillment of requirements by machines and their components in terms of functionality, durability, and convenience is a daily problem in engineering applications. The model-based development makes it possible to identify these problems at an early stage in the product life-cycle. The department of Systems Engineering - Modelling and Simulation at the MSE develops methodologies and techniques for creating and using models within the product life-cycle. For this purpose, hybrid modeling approaches, such as the combination of simulation and measurement, are often applied.

The developed models are embedded in the modern methods of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) for efficient (re)use in further developments or change processes. For this purpose, the MBSE methods are being further developed accordingly in the System Integration group.


  • Analysis, prediction, and prevention of harmful vibrations
  • Analysis and optimization of noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH)
  • Functional testing of components and systems
  • Integration of multi-domain models into the methods of model-based systems engineering for virtual functional testing
