Product modelling help the designer to communicate about the design problem with his/her colleagues. Models help also the designer to understand entirely the problem to be solved. Aims of the designer is to capture the needs of the customers and the desired behaviour of the product in to the models, which generate and maintain the bridge between the product specifications and the final solution. Object-oriented methods offer new possibilities to capture the requirements of a mechatronic products. Modelling the user interfaces and making scenarios for typical users (use cases) of the system helps to refine the needed transformation processes. I am going to present and discuss ideas on formal methods for modelling the product during the definition and the specification phases of the design process.

Keywords: design methodology, requirements modelling, theory of technical system
