Abstract
The paper discusses design issues within the rapid product development regarding the upcoming flexible on-site manufacturing technologies. A product having to meet today's requirements is also subject to an ever-increasing degree of individualization. As a result, due to competition more emphasis is being placed on additional differentiation features brought about by its functionally oriented conception and layout (the 'gestaltung'). The paper reports on the current research work to implement the new product development steps based on a hybrid model environment. Within the typical model cycle of paper sketches, clay models and CAD models, examples of hybrid modelling strategies obeying fuzzy 'gestalt' features will be presented. The paper also gives some examples of the efficient configuration and product formation particularly with regard to creativity and using bionic archetypes, and explains how the efficient 'gestaltung' is capable of influencing the quality and advantages of innovative products.
