In automation mechanical units are more and more replaced by electronic components. They contain sensors, actuators and information computing systems. The goal is to achieve higher process and product quality. That means, for example, to increase the performance by implementing more functionality. Systems become interconnected, which causes increased complexity - something that cannot easily be handled with traditional technological approaches. It is necessary to rethink existing approaches and find new solutions. These could be found in bionic models. Contemporary researchers like Mark Solms and Antonio R. Damasio build upon psychoanalysis, which could be such a new approach for engineers. The theories of psychoanalysis are widely unknown to engineers, still their methods, which originate from neurology, are partly similar to the methods of computer technology. It is merely the theoretical foundation of psychoanalysis, which is complex and at the start hard to grasp for an engineer. Cooperation between engineers and psychoanalysts thus has to overcome this hurdle before being successful. But if we want to conduct our scientific work consequently, it is high time that we get acquainted with psychoanalysis. The following paper wants to show how to install such cooperation and tries to outline the idea of a model that results from already existing collaboration.
