The objective of the project is to stimulate new and innovative solutions for micro manufacturing through the use of design methods. The main goal is to analyse and further develop design methods and methodologies, which for example could include functional analysis, DfM, axiomatic design and bio-inspired design methods. Furthermore, it is expected to include evaluation of sustainability issues using life cycle analysis in the design approach.
