To promote the use of 1D CAE model in the mechanoelectrical industry, it is necessary to resolve the issues associated with the model and reduce the cost of creating it. We are in the process of developing the guidelines for creating proper 1D CAE models that will help reduce the modeling cost. A mechano-electrical product is generally a complex system of mechanical, electrical/controlling, and software components. In the industry, Modelica and MATLAB/Simulink are emerging as popular tools for modeling the mechanical and electrical/controlling components, respectively. Programming languages derived from C are usually used for describing the software necessary in the mechano-electrical product. For example, SystemC is recognized as a standard tool for describing a hardware behavior in the design of electronic circuits to be incorporated in the product. In this study, we investigated a method for the combined use of these tools. We explain our findings in our experimental construction of 1D CAE models of a mechano-electrical product using Modelica, MATLAB/Simulink, and SystemC simultaneously.
