Abstract

The Auto Genetic Design Theory (ADT) uses analogies between evolution and activities in the design processes to ensure, that the best possible solution can be found, within the given boundaries. These requirements and conditions can also contradict each other and change over time. The ADT interprets the product development as a continuous improvement process. The presence of self-similar activities and the existence of chaotic behavior are characteristics of the ADT. Based on previous work on the basics of ADT, the actual knowledge should be expanded and deepened; so that they have most activities during product development can be described from an evolutionary perspective. This should be processed by working on the following objectives: a product description from an evolutionary perspective, description of the solution space, development of a process model which describes the processes during an evolutionary product development.
