Derivation, analysis and comparison of geometric requirements for various vehicle drivetrains using dimensional chains

Felgenhauer, Matthias; Schöpe, Frank; Bayerlein, Michaela; Lienkamp, Markus // 2017
Following the development of new drivetrain concepts (e.g. BEV and FCEV) the comparison of drivetrains becomes increasingly important during the vehicle architecture design. Thereby, the geometrical ...

Design for robustness - Systematic application of design guidelines to control uncertainty

Freund, Tillmann; Würtenberger, Jan; Lotz, Julian; Rommel, Carmen; Kirchner, Eckhard // 2017
In Robust Design literature, the application of Robust Design guidelines is suggested as a measure to obtain a design that is more insensitive against variations. But it lacks a detailed and ...

Differences between the discerning and opportunistic mind-sets in design learning

Hamat, Basyarah; Eisenbart, Boris; Schoormans, Jan; Badke-Schaub, Petra // 2017

Corremans, Jan A.M.; Coppieters, Werner // 2017
The importance and value of hand drawing and sketching activity in the early stages of the design process has already been extensively argued. Ideation sketches are used as a source of inspiration ...

Entscheidungsheuristiken in der PGE - Produktgenerationsentwicklung  (Members only )

Nikola, Bursac; Simon, Rapp; Albert, Albers; Jan, Breitschuh; Narucha, Tanaiutchawoot // 2017
Product development always includes the selection of ideas from a set of potential ideas and thus pointing the way for the subsequent process. Doing this intuitively always implies the risk of not ...

Expert based approach to analyse and influence indirect cost of engineering changes

Schmied, Christian; Gebhardt, Marcel; Mörtl, Markus; Lindemann, Udo // 2017
Indirect cost of engineering changes represent increasing challenges for companies. Their high frequency and complex cost impacts makes it difficult to estimate and influence the cost outcomes. ...

Extended target weighing approach - Identification of lightweight design potential for new product generations

Albers, Albert; Revfi, Sven; Spadinger, Markus // 2017
In the development process of vehicles, especially electric vehicles, lightweight design becomes more and more important. Lightweight design efforts often result in increasing costs of a product and ...

Gathering and analysing external influences on the product design - a case study

Boolean Searches

The following examples demonstrate some search strings that use boolean operators:

  • design community
    Find rows that contain at least one of the two words.
  • +design +community
    Find rows that contain both words.
  • +design community
    Find rows that contain the word “design”, but rank rows higher if they also contain “community”.
  • +design -community
    Find rows that contain the word “design” but not “community”.
  • +design ~community
    Find rows that contain the word “design”, but if the row also contains the word “community”, rate it lower than if row does not.
  • +design +(>community <decisions)
    Find rows that contain the words “design” and “community”, or “design” and “decisions” (in any order), but rank “design community” higher than “design decisions”
  • design*
    Find rows that contain words such as “design”, “designs”, “designing”, or “designer”.
  • "some words"
    Find rows that contain the exact phrase “some words” (for example, rows that contain “some words of wisdom” but not “some noise words”). Note that the " characters that enclose the phrase are operator characters that delimit the phrase. They are not the quotation marks that enclose the search string itself.
