Existing process models for the development of mechatronic systems do not consider the task for weight reduction and its positive effects for the manufacturing and usage phase of systems, e.g. savings in resources and energy. Lightweight design only often represents an optimization step after the product development which leads to problems like restricted functionality, increase of development costs and development time or quality. In this paper, a process model on the basis of the known V model of the guideline VDI 2206 is developed whereas weight reduction is no longer seen as optimization task at the end of product development. Instead, it will be integrated into the process itself and will be evaluated within several analysis steps which are distributed over the design procedure.
This 9th bi-annual conference serves as a Nordic complement to the large European and American conferences within the field of Engineering Design and Product Development. The conference topic is design in a wide context: Integrated Product Development, Engineering Design, Industrial Design and Conceptualisation. Suggested topics for paper submission are: - Product Development - Research approaches and topics - Design education and teaching Researchers, practitioners and students are invited...
Enhancing a Nordic approach to product development in industry, education and research...
