Chapter
Two chassis components were developed at the Technische Universität Darmstadt that are used to isolate the body and to reduce wheel load fluctuation. The frequency responses of the components were identified with a stochastic foot point excitation in a hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) simulation environment at the hydropulser. The modelling of the transm...

Uncertainty affects all phases of the product life cycle of technical systems, from design and production to their usage, even beyond the phase boundaries. Its identification, analysis and representation are discussed in the previous chapter. Based on the gained knowledge, our specific approach on mastering uncertainty can be applied. These approac...
Chapter

This chapter describes three general strategies to master uncertainty in technical systems: robustness, flexibility and resilience. It builds on the previous chapters about methods to analyse and identify uncertainty and may rely on the availability of technologies for particular systems, such as active components. Robustness aims for the design of...
Chapter
The engineer starts with paper and pencil. From the basic idea to the axiomatic model, this is all he or she needs. If the axiomatic model does not reproduce the results of the experiment due to too many simplifications, the axiomatic model shall be extended. The aim is to guarantee the desired functionality at an early design stage and thus ensure...

Narrow tolerances are commonly used to control uncertainty in the production of technicalcomponents. However, narrow tolerances lead to financial expense and limit flexibility. In this paperthe concept of a resilient process chain is presented. This concept covers the product life cycle phases ofproduction and usage. It is enabled by the digitaliza...

Resilience as a concept has found its way into different disciplines to describe the ability of an individual or system to withstand and adapt to changes in its environment. In this paper, we provide an overview of the concept in different communities and extend it to the area of mechanical engineering. Furthermore, we present metrics to measure re...

By combining the established development method according to VDI guideline 2206 and the new approach of resilience, resilient product development makes it possible to control uncertainty in the early development phases. Based on the uncertainty that can occur in a classical product development process, such as uncertainty due to (i) the transition...
