In this paper, an experimental study on comprehending and teaching heterogeneous concept modelling is presented. By the help of predefined model elements on different levels of abstraction, a single modelling plane and a methodology including complementary actions, a novel approach is applied by different proband groups. Analysing the conducted experiments in this preliminary study, several important conclusions are deduced for further improvement of the teachability of the approach as well as the approach itself.

Keywords: heterogeneous concept modelling, methodology, teaching engineering skills, product development, early phases, experimental preliminary study
