Active systems are characterized by an integration of electronic components into mechanical systems and can be distinguished into mechatronics and adaptronics. In adaptronic systems the electronic components are full structural integrated. The Department of Computer Integrated Design (DiK) has developed the W-model as a new proceeding model for the integrated development of adaptronic systems which is based upon a virtual cross-disciplinary integration and verification in all phases of product development. Therefore the W-Model insists on the use of special development environment which is based on the product data management functionalities. In this paper a proposal for a meta-data-model for such an environment is presented. Following the W-model the meta-data-model allows the definition, import and analysis of complex system models, the derivation of hierarchic requirements-, function- and product structures and the definition of integrated system simulations for the virtual verification of results.
