Objecting to the Revolution: Model-Based Engineering and the Industry - Root Causes Beyond Classical Research Topics

Gerald Stieglbauer, Igor Rončević

Abstract

By now, model-based engineering (MBE) has a long tradition in academics and research. In contrast to this long tradition, however, adoption of MBE principles in the industry still remain limited. This led to corresponding debates within the modelling community about the root causes of this limited adoption. This paper highlights the importance of these debates and shares the experience gained during many years of technology transfer activity from research to industrial applications. We are presenting two hypotheses beyond classical research topics, for which we have observed in practice that they have the potential to make the adoption of MBE principles in industry more successful. Since these hypotheses are currently based on our observations rather than on scientific research, we want to encourage the modelling community to take the presented aspects into account in their research work.
