Project Virtual Product Development

Project example: Project "Smart Tripelec"
Development of a sustainable medium-haul mobility system for the city.


The Smart Tripelec project aims to develop a technology and method demonstrator for the research fields of sustainability and virtual product development. Based on a student draft (Virtual Engineering WS12/13) the multidisciplinary project group, consisting of 9 students and 3 research assistants from the fields of mechanical engineering, production engineering, industrial engineering and technical informatics, started in November 2013 with feasibility studies and the development of first concept models.


In the further course of the project, the team developed the first concepts emerged in this way and finally implemented them with the help of parametric CAD and simulation tools into a design suitable for production and assembly. After the preparation of the manufacturing and assembly documents, the procurement of the necessary parts and raw materials as well as the commissioning of the in-house production components, the challenging production of the welding assembly of the main frame began. After this challenge was also mastered by the team, the final assembly of the Smart Tripelec took place on a specially developed assembly stand.

Supported by digital tools for design, simulation, data management and project management, the team was able to successfully complete the "Smart Tripelec" project on schedule and put the innovative vehicle into operation.
