This paper advocates the need of a precise definition and consistent use of the notion of states and modes in system engineering and why this is important for the early validation of system behavior. This work is part of a solution developed for Bombardier Transport in order to provide continued validation of a train behavior across all development steps. The aim is to define concepts that support and generalize the application and use of states and modes in a way that is compatible with current practice, languages and tools. The finality of our work is to provide models that specify and integrate the whole system behavior at a high level of abstraction (in both granularity and details of the information characterized), enabling its validation and then supporting traceability of the behavior and its validation across the development process. This work is conducted under the principles of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and is linked to the use of SysML models. The examples presented are taken from the train industry.
