Abstract

This paper argues that model-based techniques, in particular those dealing with electromechanical systems in engineering applications, will benefit considerably by incorporating multiple perspectives. This can be achieved by integrating different representations from engineering notations, e.g. structural and func- tional knowledge, and different domain attributes, e.g. mechanical and electrical aspects. An example case study is used to illustrate and evaluate the approach. 1 Introduction Model-based reasoning is an approach toward building intelligent systems that are able to predict the consequences of events in an application problem domain. This has many applications in engineering: it can be used to deduce the effects of alternatives in a design, it can predict outcomes of a control
