Summary

Continuously shortening development periods together with increasing requirements for functionality and mechanical performance lead to an advanced complexity and a bigger amount of variants of new components. Therefore it is unavoidable to link design, numerical simulation and process development from the beginning.

In this paper a development concept with three phases is described. It includes virtual product design and virtual process development, real product and process development as well as final confirmation tests of the component quality.
