The mechanical engineering scene has increasingly incorporated electrics and electronics for the control of mechanical systems. With the growing importance of design automation and an increasing need for integrating engineering disciplines, new methods and tools for mechatronic engineering should be provided. In this paper, the meaning of design methodology will be discussed as fundamentals for engineering work. Computer aided methods and tools which have been developed at the Department of Computer Integrated Design (DiK) will be presented. A prototype implementation shows how these methods and tools could enhance engineering tasks in mechatronic product development.
