The model driven simulation of mobile construction equipment is investigated in the BMBF-funded project
INPROVY. A framework was introduced to structure the problem and divide it into different model layers.
The vertical integration of the different model layers is the subject of this article. An evaluation through the
method of feature-based comparisons of the integration approaches that represent the state of research is
carried out. In a small case-study the applicability of vertical model integration in the field of model driven
simulation is analysed.
