[en] Modeling mechatronic multibody systems requires the same type of methodology as for designing and prototyping mechatronic devices: a unified and integrated engineering approach. Various formulations are currently proposed to deal with multiphysics modeling, e.g. graph theories, equational approaches, co-simulation techniques. Recent works have pointed out their relative advantages and drawbacks, depending on the application to deal with: model size, model complexity, degree of coupling, frequency range, etc. This paper is the result of a close collaboration between three Belgian laboratories, and aims at showing that for "non-academic" mechatronic applications (i.e. issuing from real industrial issues), multibody dynamics formulations can be generalized to mechatronic applications, for the model generation as well as for the numerical analysis phases. Model portability being also an important aspect of the work, they must be easily interfaced with control design and optimization programs. A global "demonstrator", based on an industrial case, is discussed: multiphysics modeling, control design and mathematical optimization are carried out to illustrate the consistency and the efficiency of the proposed approaches.
