This approach shows a methodology which allows to systematically integrate the existing models and methods of Robust Design into the development of a product and its life cycle processes. To this end, a model of the design process is presented. At every stage of this model, the required documents are allocated generating a certain documentation. It is essential that uncertainties, that occur within the life cycle of the product, are detected in order to control them. From the beginning of the very early phases of Robust Design a consistent uncertainty analysis is necessary. Therefore, product and life cycle process modeling is required in all phases. In order to generate the product and life cycle process models, a model-based integrated product and process development based on a combined product and life cycle process model is shown. Furthermore, an approach is presented to generate life cycle process models in the early phases based on the prognosis of product properties and the selection of the relevant properties for the prognosis of process properties.

Keywords: integrated product and process development, robust design, uncertainty, life cycle process model, combined product and life cycle process model
