Abstract [en]

This report describes the conceptual design and development of a virtual prototype of a sustainable delivery vehicle for cities in the European Union. The project was carried out as a multidisciplinary project where one product design engineering student and one mechanical engineering student participated. The project’s design process was based on “The Mechanical Design Process” methodology by Ullman and secondary it was influenced by the product process of Ulrich & Eppinger.

The initial phase of the project aimed to define the problem area and to set the requirements for the vehicle. This phase included: study of the problem, study of stakeholders, market research and an ergonomics study. When the requirements were set and clarified, the concept generation phase followed. The generated design concepts were then assessed according to the fulfilment of set requirements. One final concept was chosen for further development in the following product generation phase. In this phase, the vehicle was designed using virtual tools, and the design was developed and evaluated in further detail. The final concept is considered to fulfil most requirements, although there are some requirements that require further investigation and development.
