Relevance of virtual product development for lightweight technologies


The improvement of energy and resource efficiency of moving masses plays an important role in terms of sustainable strategies for CO2 reduction. Significant weight savings can be achieved through applications of innovative and cost-attractive manufacturing technologies such as composite technologies or construction in multi-material-design. This consequently leads to challenges associated to joining technologies and the need for disruptive lightweight strategies which must be integrally applied along the product development process. A significant contribution towards this task can be achieved with technology-specifc software solutions, powerful enough to increase the potential of manufacturing technologies. […]
