Extensive elimination of expensive materials
   (thereby rendering the project cost-neutral)
System-wide approach, with optimum integration of components
Substitution of materials to take place only as the second stept

Point of departure and method of resolution
Objective: reduction of the unsprung masses in a powered front axle

Influencing variables: m = V * r

VEGAVO

Approach: reduction of mass
by means of optimisation

Result
