The research and teaching practiced at the Laboratory for Product Development and Lightweight Design is about engineering design, i.e., the creation of concrete solutions to specific problems. Design problems where the solution and its elements are entirely unknown are particularly interesting for us. These can be solved applying a so-called top-down approach, where the focus is on the desired features of the new product rather than on already existing solutions or their elements. We cover a large span of different quantitative and qualitative methods ranging, for example, from new numerical optimization techniques from lightweight design to Design Structure Matrices from product development. Application fields for our core research include but are not limited to: Robotics, Automotive Engineering and new products. In order to produce both applicable and scientifically outstanding results we closely cooperate with many partners from industry and academia.
