Engineering processes are mostly carried into execution by trans-disciplinary teams that are often also distributed over several countries. The competitive conduction of product engineering projects from early ideas via embodiment design, production and finally distribution and service is a huge challenge which needs to be supported. In this paper, at first we review some examples of theories and methods that aim to provide this support. Afterwards we introduce the project KI2 – Karlsruhe Innovative Individual Mobility. It exemplifies a complex engineering project and depicts requirements for assisting engineering design. One possible way to achieve this assistance is presented towards the end of the paper: function-based modelling with the Contact and Channel Model (C&CM). This approach is part of current research cooperation.

Keywords: Contact and Channel Model (C&CM), Function-Based Modelling, Engineering Process
