The capability to shorten the process of engineering
technical systems, from the mission to build the system to
the final commissioning of the system, has become a critical
factor for company success. This engineering
process has become a time and money consuming part of
the overall life cycle of a technical system. Common approaches
for tackling this problem are the improvement
of functions of isolated tools and the improvement/
provision of the interoperability between tools.
However, there is only little information on needs and
preferences of domain experts.
In this paper we report on a questionnaire-based survey
to elicit the needs and preferences of domain experts.
We analyze the answers of 88 domain experts from different
disciplines with a variety of backgrounds on the
importance of tool functionalities during functional engineering
and discuss improvement aspects of three major
functionalities rated as most important: version
management, data exchange, and consistency checking.
