Today, product developer face the challenge taking not only the requirements for mechanical properties of a product into account, but also other requirements like the acoustical properties, for instance. If undesired acoustical product properties are identified product developer ask experts for counter-measures. They usually can find solutions for these acoustical issues by detailed analysis of data like sound emission measurements, noise and vibration measurements or validated multi-body simulation results. By aid of an engineering assistance system the knowledge of the expert can be provided to product developer in order to reapply these findings for new products or product variants already in early design phases of the product development process. This will help the product developer to guarantee the specified acoustical product properties already in the earlier phases. This contribution will give an insight in the realization of the engineering assistance system ALARM for the development of noise-reduced machines.
