Master Thesis: Implementation of a SysML language profile for the function-oriented, solution-neutral system description

Webseite Institute for Machine Elements and Systems Engineering


The Institute of Machine Elements and System Engineering at RWTH Aachen University provides interdisciplinary research on a broad spectrum of current, future and industry-relevant issues. The Systems Engineering – Design Methodology department of the MSE deals with the development process of industrial products and gives the creative phase a systematic structure. This supports finding innovative solutions as well as the subsequent design implementation. Suitable methods and tools guarantee the technical and commercial applicability.
A trend in product development is model-based system engineering (MBSE), in which development takes place on  the basis of a seamlessly linked system model. In the MoVerHu project, MBSE methods are applied to the  systemic wear analysis of helicopter gearboxes and further developed. This application example results in new issues for modelling. In the context of this thesis, the following question should be answered: Which standard  elements are needed for a function-oriented, solutionneutral system description and how should they be  structured?


  • Learning the software Cameo Systems Modeler
  • Building a function model using the example of a bearing concept of a helicopter main gearbox.
  • Classification and definition of standard elements of the function model, such as functions and function flows.
  • Development of a standardized structure for these elements, e.g. naming standards
  • Implementation of the standardized structure in a SysML language profile


  • Independent, reliable way of working
  • Interest in model-based system engineering
  • Previous knowledge of SysML and system modelling in the Cameo Systems Modeler is advantageous.

We provide

  • Flexible organization of main focus of work
  • Assignment can be completed in German and English
  • Intensive support and good working atmosphere
  • Working in home office possible
