Within the engineering of manufacturing systems the paradigm mechatronical units is of important interest. To deal properly with mechatronical units within manufacturing system engineering they have to be defined, described and used in an appropriate way establishing a mechatronical engineering process. This paper describes from good practice experience how mechatronical units can be modeled and used within the mechatronical engineering process, how the data describing mechatronical units can be structured within tools and exchange formats, and how mechatronical units can be derived to be re-usable within the mechatronical engineering process. Thereby, this paper gives advices for an efficient and proper application of mechatronical units within engineering processes of manufacturing systems.
