Conceptual design

  • Development of specifications and requirements taking into account all loads (mechanical, thermal, medial) as well as functional and economic requirements
  • Development of conceptual designs for the primary load-bearing structure without detailed design of secondary areas such as joining zones (e.g. riveted joints) or functional surfaces (e.g. sealing grooves)
  • Systematic evaluation of design concepts considering different factors such as lightweight potential, costs, sustainability, recycling, automation etc.
  • Selection of preferred conceptual design
