Changes in prescribed loads and available space of vehicle structure parts lead to a dynamic requirement profile which changes over the course of the vehicle development. Due to the interdependency of vehicle structure parts, the modification of a single component may simultaneously change the requirements of the surrounding parts. Therefore the development of a methodical approach which can deal with these dynamic requirements can be seen as key function for the integration of a systematical material selection into the vehicle development process and is described in detail in this paper.
