Abstract

In literature there are several lightweight approaches, such as conditional, conceptual or material lightweight design. But the challenge for the designers is to use the suitable lightweight approach and to develop a lightweight solution for their product. In this paper, an approach for a method which supports the designer in a systematic finding of lightweight solutions will be presented. In order to realise a method for developing lightweight solutions, the Contact & Channel - Model will be adapted.
