The complexity of intermodal freight terminals poses a challenge for logistics planning. This also applies to the Next Generation Train CARGO (NGT CARGO) logistics terminal, which is embedded as a future intermodal transshipment hub in a high-speed freight train concept developed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Previous studies revealed that the existing terminal concept is only partially capable of facilitating the required intralogistics processes. This thesis investigates the successful application of Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) as guiding approach to a detailed system architecture of the NGT CARGO logistics terminal. Focus is laid on intralogistics freight handling. A tailored MBSE approach is derived and applied within a comprehensive architecture modeling process. As key outcome of the specification process, a product architecture variant is specifically designed for selected types of goods. The resulting variant is verified and validated from a logistics perspective. The underlying system model enables the creation of further NGT CARGO logistics terminal variants. The results of this work demonstrate that MBSE is capable of successfully guiding the architecture development of complex logistics facilities. Experienced advantages and disadvantages of the application of MBSE are discussed. Integration of the promising MBSE approach into current and future logistics planning is proposed.
