Abstract

The engineering process for railway vehicles comprises a broad variety of different domain expertise - control system, electrical and mechanical engineering. All of these domains are complex by themselves and most of the existing manufacturers are really satisfied having one domain sufficiently supported. One of the successful attempts is Adtranz's CAPE/C (Computer Aided Project Engineering for Control Systems) environment [[!]]. Having such an environment in mind we at ABB Corporate Research have started investigations on traction control engineering which comprises the electrical and mechanical engineering domain. In this paper we present our approach and developed tool support for a closed loop engineering process for development of traction co
