In the context of lightweight design, the so-called tailored blanks are more frequently used to improve sheet-bulk metal forming process results. In order to meet the requirements of tailored blank designs for subsequent sheet-bulk metal forming process steps, design engineers can influence many process or geometry parameters. A crucial task for design engineers is to find the optimal process and geometry parameter setting that is an optimal design with respect to multiple design requirements. A simulation-based approach to face this challenge is presented in this paper.
