One of the leading topics in the automotive industry as well as in the aircraft and aerospace sector is the use of lightweight structures for weight reduction. For this purpose, hybrid materials, e.g. metal-plastic structures, are of essential importance. Despite the high technological challenge, the manufacturing techniques still provide versatile development potential. Especially the integration of separate production techniques in one single tool opens new possibilities of successfully designing a resource-efficient process chain for hybrid components, suitable for series production.
Within the Cluster of Excellence "MERGE Technologies for Multifunctional Lightweight Structures", a modelling approach for the resourceefficient process design of the manufacturing of hybrid structures, which is based on a multidimensional analysis, will be developed. Besides the technical optimisation, the energy efficiency, the cost-effectiveness, the robustness of process chains as well as the maturity regarding series production will be considered during the entire development process. The paper will present main features of this modelling approach including a proposal for a systematic and structured procedure of a multidimensional analysis.
