THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF THE MERCEDES - BENZ CONCEPT MIDIBUS USING METHODIC DESIGN
The application of systematic design , especially in the conceptual design phase of complex technical systems is quite difficult. The main reason is the methods, which are used for the analysis and the synthesis of technical systems are too difficult and abstract to use which is a problem for engineers who are used to work with concrete objects. The aim of the study is to apply the systematic design steps on the design of a midibus. The problem during the design of the midibus is the assembly of the engine and the transmission elements at the rear part of the midibus because of the insufficient space. Different solution alternatives are designed and examined using steps of systematic design methods and the best design is determined.
