Concurrent Assessment of Material and Joining Technology in Lightweight Engineering

Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST,volume 130)

Abstract

The automotive sector is facing various challenges, such as increasing costs for the production, but also stricter environmental regulations for more sustainable processes and products. The resulting trend to lightweight engineering, however, is causing a growing variety of materials with individual characteristics, which is also leading to an increasing diversity of joining technologies. The component-specific selection of a suitable material and joining technology is usually based on the expertise of a developer; a standardized method analyzing the concurrent assessment of both dimensions regarding monetary (economic impact) and non-monetary (technological and eco-logical impact) criteria does not exist. In doing so, the concurrent assessment approach identifies potential and technically feasible solutions based on individually and/or coherently weighted attributes along with their maximum score to highlight alternatives which fit best collectively. Hence, an essential part of this research is to determine their interrelations and develop a methodology, which consolidates the findings of the assessment of materials and joining technologies for a transparent and sustainable decision-making in product development.
