Abstract

In a wider context of sustainable product engineering, this contribution presents an approach to a design catalogue consisting of mechatronic concepts and systems which can be used for weight reduction and weight distribution. Mechatronic solutions in different abstraction levels are classified and characterized with specific criteria and support designers during solution finding. It is possible to achieve a knowledge shift to earlier design phases and to reduce development time when taking this catalogue into account and get access to available lightweight design knowledge.

Keywords: weight optimization, mechatronic concepts, design catalogue, knowledge
