Description

A planning method is presented which allows to systematically building process chains based on a preliminary design of composite structures. The method utilises the specific sequences of procedural steps that occur in the production of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) structures, to build sub process chains for each component of the structure. Process restrictions are considered to evaluate the suitability of different production processes. To obtain the whole process chain of the structure, different joining methods are applied in addition to combine the components and its sub process chains. The results of the presented method are used in an overarching development procedure to investigate resulting impacts on the solution. Possible impacts could be the production
costs or the material characteristics.
