A Holistic Approach for Technical Product Optimization

Authors: Harald Lang, A. Buchroithner, Michael Bader


Holistic methods covering the development process as a whole – e.g. systems engineering – have established themselves in product design. However, technical product optimization, representing improvements in efficiency and/or minimization of loss, usually applies to single components of a system. A holistic approach is being defined based on a hierarchical point of view of systems engineering. This is subsequently presented using the example of an electromechanical flywheel energy storage system for automotive applications.

Keywords: Design, Systems Engineering, Product Development, product optimization
